what do weasels eat?
Weasels eat a wide variety of foods. Weasels have been pets for 1000s of years and companies now make Ferret food. And yes the weasel and a ferret are in the same family. Though domesticated Weasels are much harder to find than the Ferret, many people do have pet Weasels. If you have a pet Weasel you may purchase food for him at any local pet store. Some of the brands are Totally Ferret, Evo Ferret Diet, Pretty Pets, ZuPreem, and Pretty Pets.
Wild Weasels are carnivores and are skilled hunters. Depending on where the Weasel lives their diet changes, but all weasels eat other small animals like prairie dogs, rabbits, chipmunks, rats, frogs, and field mice.
Farmers who have rabbits and chickens often have problems with Weasels do to the fact that they will raid a Chicken coup and kill many chickens and rabbits at a time. On the other hand a healthy weasel population and keep rat and field mice populations very low.
