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 »

not short tail or long tail weasels but ferrets
3 August 2018 | by sandcrab277See all my reviews

The ermine is the white fur phase of short tailed weasel in winter that is more desirable than the stoat phase of brown and mixed white fur the remainder of the year ... they are seldom seen in an urban or suburban environment .... more likely in the wild where they den usually in blown down tree root systems to stay safe from predators ... can often be found raiding rabbit warrens, retreating to their own dens after the catch .... the high country in montana is an ideal location to find them in the wild ... the long tailed weasel, usually a light brown color can be found from canada to mexico and is a skilled hunter... tech reps on the bones writing staff often overlook doing proper research before leading the audience astray
