Arcot Lane this evening, and something on the road near the entrance to the lakes. As I neared, NINE dead young stoats (EDIT: These may be weasels - can anyone advise, please? RE-EDIT: They are weasels), laid out randomly, not squashed by a car, and two with bright red blood from the mouth and one partially disemboweled. They were all the same size, about 6 to 7 inches. I moved them onto the verge, hence the photos below. I might be near 50 yrs old, but this had me gutted. Any theories appreciated.
