Coyote Petersen (previously at Neatorama) says he doesn’t want to wiggle his fingers, and then wiggles his fingers to illustrate. This video is full of contradictions. He goes to the Steve Kroschel Wilderness Center in Haines, Alaska, to interact with an animal that was raised in captivity. The short-tail weasel is supposed to be a terribly ferocious animal, yet it is tiny and adorable and avoids human contact.
In this episode of the web series Breaking Trail, Peterson acts as if a weasel will rip his flesh, but the cutesy music tones down the sense of danger. It’s easy to be startled by the jumpy little creature, though, especially once you’ve heard its reputation! -via Laughing Squid
