I'm not using a figure of speach either......I think I have a real weasel living in my barn!! Something is digging a hole and it's maybe as big around as a tangerine maybe smaller and I found a dead baby weasel in the yard. Any Ideas? I tried a live trap but didn't catch anything and it ate the food. Not a good trap I guess. And my goats are in that barn sO i have to be careful what I put out. Thanks!!
