How do weasels avoid predators? Secret may be on tails: Nature News | #childpredator | #onlinepredator | #sextrafficing

I spent the weekend up in the White Mountains participating in volunteer naturalist training for the Appalachian Mountain Club. I love these kinds of events. Every time I get together with other naturalists, I learn new things. 

One of my favorite new fun facts was about the short-tailed weasel (Mustela erminea).  This is a common weasel that has become something of a Holy Grail for me: I want to see one in the wild, but I have not. I have found their tracks in the snow around my house, so I know they are here and am waiting for that magical moment when one pops out of the wood pile or lopes across the field next to my house on a cold winter’s day (as long as it isn’t carrying off one of my chickens).
