You didn't mention how big the mammal was. In this area are not only weasels, but mink, but they are both relatively small. Mink are dark brown, however. Otters are around (I found one dead in the road at my house in Mechanicsville a few weeks ago) but they don't have a busy tail. Neither do beavers (which don't fit anyway) or muskrats. You would know a squirrel I am sure. Raccoons and opossums don't fit. I just don't know! Margaret You are subscribed to VA-Richmond-General.
