Stoat and rabbit
Stoat and rabbit
Bit of a commotion in our back garden this morning, with chickens scattering and sounding their warning calls. A stoat had caught a rabbit and was thrashing around, holding it by the throat, trying to kill it. The rabbit was at least three times the size of the stoat. Eventually the rabbit succumbed (I was pleased, because there are far too many rabbits around). The stoat seemed completely unaware that I was watching, indeed approaching slowly with camera in hand. This photo was taken some 10 feet away. The stoat has a face-full of rabbit blood (look away now, children)....
