The wild scavenger animals here were supposedly "short tailed weasels" aka ermine, which are small, nocturnal, elusive animals that live in wild brushy areas. They do not hang out in town garbage dumps to scavenge cadavers in broad daylight. Even worse, the animals shown are clearly tame domestic ferrets, which are at least twice the size of a short tailed weasel and don't look anything like them. And once again Hodges once more bare-handedly catches a wild animal that would run away long before he got near it, or bite viciously if cornered. See more »

Talk radio doesn't mean White Supremacist or Domestic Terrorist. Also, no nationally syndicated talk show preaches racism.
