Dead weasel found down in the big barn. I believe this is the critter that killed Tukka. Not this exact weasel, as this one has been dead for quite some time, but it proves to me they are around my farm and that I found the carcass in the barn, makes me wonder if they may have even been inside the barn already. It is interesting to study its body up close.
Most of you reading this know that my beloved rabbit Timothy disappeared for three weeks, and I assumed he had died. Last Friday morning, there he was in the hen yard, returned from wherever he had been, or awakened from whatever had happened to him. My theories:
- He really IS the Easter Bunny, and was a few weeks late getting back from his rounds
- Snow falling from the barn roof hit him and he was in some kind of coma or knocked out and was sleeping it off
- He witnessed the murder of Tukka and was so traumatized, he went underground for 3 weeks. A weasel killed Tukka a day before Timothy went missing
- He was sick, and as animals do, healed himself down in the burrow
Whatever the answer, words cannot express the joy I felt seeing my bunny friend back again.
