A rare species in UK expanding its range after being exterminated across most of Britain.

Looks like the real thing too (i.e. not a ferret or a polecat/ferret 'hybrid').

Obviously this maggot and tick infested corpse was too interesting to bury. It's wrapped-up in my freezer (just in case it's ID needs to be confirmed).

They're not called polecats for nothing - they're perfect for skewering over a BBQ. And this one comes ready stuffed with maggots and a light dusting of bloated ticks - yum-yum wink.gif

Makes a change for my freezer - it's usually full of spiders!!

What a bloody waste ....You could have skinned the thing.

You could have made several things out of that pelt like

1)Finger mouse puppets.
2)Action man fur coat.
3)Mobile phone holder.
4)Pirates eye patch.
5)Genuine Fur pen holder.
6)Add your own ideas ....................

Polecats are origionally of welsh origin. The only true way to establish this animals true id is by skull measurments and dna, The national museums of Scotland ran a study of polecat numbers last year and there has been a 93% increase since 1995.
Study's also confirm polecats true welsh origins.
