As we remember seeing only one. other weasel ever, v/e were interested to see two wllfa'in' sf‘shtfrt time:’ One1 of these animals we saw just south of Wright’s corners on the No‘*li Greenwich road,’ the other oa the road into the Bat- tenkiil Country club. .Research at the Greenwich Free library leads us tp believe v that tlie? animals we , saw were long $IIefl weasels. There are •two Srati-feties •of-fhe 'long taUed . weasel, apparently, and we hesi­ tate- to sgy„ whether we saw the Mustela frenata frenata (Lich- tensteiii> or the Mustela frenata - '“ncowbol'ace'nsrs -(Emmons). At 'this season of the year, weasels hereabouts have a white belly and dark b’row'n back and the ttp p{ the tail is black. As wintfri’ approaches they, turri white* (9-iJipletely, except for the tip of I lie tail, which remains black. The female may run. from 11 to 20 inches in length and. we ighs t h r e e to nine ounces, The male is somewhat ■biggeav 3,^3 inches long and 7-14 aoltc&s. ln -w'eight; ' The weasel’s diet is exclu­ sively iiEiimal, which it likes at blood lieat and still wiggling. It eats small rodent's, jaiice, rats, chipnauitks and young rabbits. It is not an expert climber-, but it \^i31 pursue ■chipmunks into trees. ‘ Wease-Is mate in July or Au* , gust, :l)iEt their young are not born until the- following, spring. A litter .averages five to eight young, but it ma.y number as many as M 'ldpzeiv. The'animtals have musk glands near tlis- base of the tail. When excited with rage, fear or tlie mating instinct the glands give off a powerful odor. To many people the odor is more often-' sive ®n(|* puseating than is that of a sklimki'- Human ’beings- haye no greit love for weasels. They have -oilier enemies .too, includ­ ing foxo'-s, raptorSaPflfads'; large snakes ntntl house cats. We I iqovv more about weasels how tliitn we ever did before. ■?-Hope cvaSve’ increased your knowledge too. r; JOURNAL STATIONERS 1 1 W hiteside Founder of M ini The Miami,' Horj«jl,-.H:etSW has carried!' a featwrb article\ and picture - on^a 'flew schopl of which $toMj4 ‘WM’te\\‘ side, formerly of <3re|nwich, i r one of the founders.
