We have twice seen this animal around our wood shed. It is a Colorado Ermine. I saw it initially and then Carol observed it again this morning. The one we see has a much cleaner coat than this one does and they are beautiful. They are carnivores so I hope this little guy will start to work on some of the rabbits around here. We have mice, voles and pack rats as well if he is not particular. We have plenty for them to eat with an abundant food source. Bon Appetite little guy..Happy hunting...thin out our rabbit and rodent population.
