We welcome a new weasel to our BWC mustelid family. Last weekend, "Nutmeg" was brought down to us from a vets in Oxford were he was rescued. While receiving care, and being reared, he became to tame to be released back in to the wild and a permanent home was needed for him.
Of course we were happy to help, and now after nearly a week he has settled in nicely to his new home on display to the public. He is in one of our outdoor pens, opposite the polecats.
Here he will stay until next year, when we will hopefully be able to pair him up with the female next door to him.
If you are here this weekend, maybe spend a few minutes by his pen to see if you get a glimpse.
