Well for scale...the board it is laying across is a standard decking board...
I would say this creature is maybe... +/- 4 inches long.

That small world be an ermine. This is an ermine we caught last winter.

I set mousetraps in our garage throughout the winter as the field mice try to find warmer places to stay. We usually catch 3-4 a night. For about 3 weeks - no mice. Then we caught the ermine in mousetrap. He was hunting mice. Once I caught the ermine - the mice were back.
