Reminds me of the UK's ferret. Smaller with more viciousness per pound of any animal I've ever seen.
That title is reserved for the Wolverine in the north and the Ratel in the south imho.

  :thumleft: :biggrin: the ferret has a slight advantage as it weighs almost nothing.  :biggrin:

I have seen ferrets and hawks used together for hunting. The ferret flushes out the prey (usually rabbits) from the burrow and the hawk gets it when it's on the run.  :thumleft:

Please don't let the snowflakes know that...
In no time they will be protesting abuse of ferrets and hawks and cruelty to rabbits !  ::)

I am in favour of natural pest control - using the talents of predator animals to restore the balance which we as humans have disturbed by "civilising" the environment. Usually our chemical interventions cause more harm than anything before.

PS: I have a particular affection for otters. An otter's life is 99% fun and adventure...  ;D

That sounds like fun, we were 16 years old two up going into the mountains on my 50cc with ferrets and purse nets, would stop at a pub on the way back, a rabbit and a pint was always the same price.  :biggrin:

I was around one day when a farmer was caught by my hunting family, dropping off diseased rabbits, no police involved, the farming hunting community would not have approved of him, so I think he was quietly very sore for a week or so, getting moerred with a badly diseased rabbit not fun.  :-[

In my family, when I was growing up in Germany, we always had rabbit in cream sauce as a traditional Christmas day meal...  :drif:  That's probably frowned upon these days, too.

I've seen a spectacular demonstration of falconry from horseback in the Middle East, years ago. I was in awe. It's just so... regal? Noble? You know what I mean. Graceful.

Other than that, I've had a rotten week this week, and last night Mr. Zog surprised me by coming home with my favorite flowers (tulips) and chocolates. He really is the best.

 :love7:

Speaking of environmental incorrectness...

My Russian grandmother had several fur coats, lots of Italian leather goods like gloves and bags, and even a designer crocodile handbag! Most notably she had a fox fur that was for draping around the neck and shoulders, it had the fox head at one end and the tail at the other end, the head even had glass eyes.  :o When she came to visit and wore it, my dog would go absolutely nuts over it.

Those things still float around in 2nd hand shops, all mangy and dusty.

I love tulips too. Those are beautiful - enjoy.
