So I’m walking on the rail trail in West Boylston the other day when all of a sudden I see this demonic rodent carrying a dead chipmunk in its mouth. Does anyone have any idea what kind of sorcery this is?

Ummmm….what the hell is that thing?

All I know it it’s pure evil whatever it is. It’s smaller than a squirrel, yet it’s clearly a carnivore that is eating a chipmunk that it likely killed. It’s got big mouse ears, a long ass neck, and a rat tail. I know, it sounds like 90% of the population from Woonsocket, but why is it here? And that thing was not playing around with his or her meal. I’ve asked a bunch of people and no one can seem to figure it out. So what is it nature turtle riders? Is it a ferret? Are they carnivores? Is it Timon? Is it a mutant rat? Is it some sort of rodent? I honestly have no idea since I’m a city boy, so please let me know. Whatever it is these things could the solution for our mouse problem.

    Its actually a Stoat aka Short Tailed Weasel, looks similar to a least weasel…Definitely NOT a ferret…Stoats are strict carnivores and although small very ferocious

    What?! You people don’t recognize that?! What you have here is actual video evidence of the New England Chupacabra!

  • It's a ferret

    It is probably a ferret that someone dumped instead of taking it to a shelter or rescue. They will eat other animals. Google ferrets and watch the videos of them taking down animals twice their size. Amazing little animals.

      I’d say it’s a fishercat, we have them in central Ma.

        I agree with you, Cynthia. I googled “fisher cat” and the photos have those same little round ears. Bushier tales, but hey, it was a hard winter, that tail should fluff up now that prey is more plentiful.

    All around the mulberry bush,
    The monkey chased the weasel.
    The monkey stopped to pull up his sock,
    Pop goes the weasel.
    I went a-hunting in the woods,
    It wasn’t very legal,
    The dog and I were caught with the goods,
    Pop! goes the weasel.

    Ermines are smaller, that is a long tailed weasel. You have to get out of the city more. Also an ermine would attack you over it’s dinner, not run away. Anyone who has ever had an ermine in their tent knows they stand and take ground, not cede it. Have not seen an ermine south of Millinocket Maine.

    This is how you know whoever wrote this is a millenial…They don’t know what a fucking mink looks like, and instead reduces it to some mythological demonic creature. What’s next, a video of a dolphin with you claiming it to be the loch ness monster?

    You’re fucking pathetic.

    Did anyone consider that it’s a least weasel?? It’s a real thing [Mustela nivalis]. Check out some pics on Google/Wiki and decide. Fully grown they’re only 5-6 inches long.

    • El Jefe
      April 16, 2018 at 11:12 am

      Least weasels typically have white blazes in their chests, but could be. Either way, it’s a pretty cool animal.

    • gfldgadfly
      April 16, 2018 at 8:28 pm

      Hey you and El jefe may have nailed it, blow up a couple of the pics where it’s facing the camera better, and check out the neck and chest. Mustelids are so cool, I love that we live in an area with enough variety of them to even argue about on a monday night haha 🙂

      • El Jefe
        April 17, 2018 at 4:03 pm

        They are very cool animals. I saw a northern river otter about a month ago. The males search for females to breed with around mid-feb to march. It was a nice experience.

    Its in the weasel family, so all tou dick lickers fighting over fisher or marten can suck it. Weasel is all you have to say, the specific genome isnt required

    • gfldgadfly

      It’s “genus”, not “genome”, genius.

        Thanks fuck boy but im refering to the genome, its perfectly fine to call it the genome too fuck face. You can suck a big fat one too.

          Oh I’m sorry, I didn’t realize you had a genetic sequencer at your disposal, my bad. Guess most of us are content with just making an identification down close to the species level and don’t care if a weasels grandpaw passed along any interesting recessives. Tell me, did you get your dna sample from a tuft of fur at the scene, or did you take the time to extract it from a turd? Asking in the interest of science.

  • Mat

    Pretty sure it’s a mink. They are around the cape cod canal and are why it’s not crawling with rats like it was years ago.

    Hmm , TB Zoology Dept: that is either Lizzie Warrena- no doubt it escaped from the “Res” but since
    Your Lizzie has never been on a “Res,” doubt it’s a Lizzie Warrena.
    It might be a an Andius McCabeus, a Weasel common to the swamps around the Potomac Basin. Maybe he’s come to the Peoples Republic because of all the wacko progressives there.
    Or, lastly , speaking of the swamp creatures, it could well be the evasive Edwardus Markeyae , a long ago resident of thePeoples Republic who now resides in the Potomac Swamp and the warmer climes of FL. Legend has it that he returns to the People’s Republic every six years from Sept to November. Sightings are very rare between those six year visits.
    Reportedly takes residence in a basement of a relative during these rare visits.
    Perhaps others here can shed more light on the habitues of these three swamp animals.

    Animals commonly called “marten” but better known by other names include the Pennant’s, big, or fisher marten and the foul marten

    • Communista Biologist
      April 16, 2018 at 11:09 am

      Nope, that evil creature is a JimMcGovernasaurus, found most frequently lurking outside gay bars in Havana looking to gobble on bald Cuban trouser chipmunks. Probably smuggled to the area in the sphincter of a lowlife Massachusetts pol who was on hiatus in that tropical paradise and thought it would be cool to keep one as a pet.

    It’s a weasel, buuuddy. Specifically a mink. Pretty neat find; you see them occasionally in these parts. My great uncle used to own a mink farm over in Berlin. Just thank your lucky stars it wasn’t a fisher – Those bastages are vicious.

    Wow the Mensa people in this website. It is a fisher not a mink. Mink has more fur and less sleek body.

    But I agree with the guy that said it might have been Lizzy warren.

    To the guy who was upset about the anti semetic comment: take it easy this forum is not cspan. Rather far very far from it.

    • gfldgadfly
      April 16, 2018 at 7:59 am

      Hey smarty pants, before you go insulting others, get your “facks” straight. It’s a marten. Fishers are much bigger, much uglier, much meaner, and much harder to get that close to (not that you’d want to). I have a resident fisher in my back woods; they are large enough to take down a housecat, and in some populations, housecats are a preferred prey. Martens go primarily after small prey, like shrews, mice, and such. The chipmunk was quite a catch for this little dude!
      But what do I know; I have a degree in this shit, but let my MENSA membership lapse…

    It’s hard to tell the difference between the various members of the weasel family. I think it’s too small for a mink. It’s a weasel.

    I was looking out the window a couple of winters ago and noticed a rabbit darting past. A moment later was a mink taking its time and loping after it.

      “the rail trail in West Boylston is a notorious pick up area for homosexuals .”

      I think that is a solid statement for pretty much any ‘rail trail.’

      (or any ‘trail’ at all, these days.)

    Yes, I will second, here in Scituate, next to the Pincha Stool Vishnu temple, there is a happy family of Minx living in a secluded rock formation in the woods on Driftwood Ln of Seaside Rd. Minx are known to practice an “into the wild” form of Pincha Stool Vishnu courtship, without the salad plate, they prefer to eat straight from the source. Interesting proposition for humans. Please keep in mind if all that hate and anger is getting to you.
