Weasels are often seen as pests, Glaze said, but they're actually very sweet animals who are beneficial to have around. For instance, a weasel named Norman, who was raised and released last year, still comes back to visit, hunting mice just outside the house and sleeping in his hammock. "He even brought home a wild weasel friend once to play," Glaze said. "He's totally wild and free now and I can't touch him or anything, but I love having him around."
And the family who found the four weasel kits doesn't want them to go far. In fact, after they're old enough, in about two months, Glaze will release them back onto the family's property, where they were born.
