It's a Marten, Not a Weasel

This distinction is critical, as one crime victim in the state of Washington recently learned:

Police say a man was carrying a dead weasel when he burst into a Hoquiam apartment and assaulted a man.

The victim asked, "Why are you carrying a weasel?" Police said the attacker said, "It's not a weasel, it's a marten," then punched him in the nose and fled.

This incident makes more sense once you learn an important fact: the assailant was actually looking for his girlfriend at the time.
