A stoat kit (6 weeks)

Mustalid Rescue was established by Andrew Gray, a Professional Zoologist with a passion for animal conservation. He teaches Zoology and Biology at the University of Manchester and has a particular interest in amphibians and small mammals. He has studied mustelids for many years, both in the field and in captivity, and has had numerous successes raising, rehabilitating, and soft-releasing stoats and weasels to the wild.
