Borrowed Run System
Some of you who have visited us over the weekend may have noticed that our outside stoat and weasel pens, currently occupied by some polecats, have had a few run systems built in place. After the success of the pine marten runways and the already well established overhead runs in the Barn and Hedgerow, we decided to give more space to the animals in these enclosures as well.
Currently our polecats are testing them out and already they are being used regularly. Within in a few weeks we expect to see our young polecat kits running around them too.
Keep an eye on the blog over the next couple of weeks to here news of when we are moving a few of the mustelids around. We hope to be able to bring you Stoats and Weasels back to the photographic pens, with the new runways, by the end of Summer this year.
