My New Ground Squirrel Hunting Buddy – Whiskers the Weasel

Share This:


Eric was an experienced hunter who spent most of his free time exploring the wilderness and honing his marksmanship skills. On a crisp spring morning, he embarked on a mission to help a weasel that had become a frequent visitor to his backyard. The weasel, named Whiskers, had been relying on Eric’s property for its sustenance, preying on the ground squirrels that scurried around the area.

Armed with his trusty Ruger 10/22 Magnum rifle, Eric ventured into the outskirts of the forest where the ground squirrels were known to congregate. He moved silently, careful not to alert his prey to his presence. His keen eyes scanned the ground, searching for any signs of movement.

After a few moments of observation, Eric spotted a plump ground squirrel darting in and out of a small burrow, seemingly unaware of the lurking danger. With his rifle poised against his shoulder, he steadied his aim, his finger gently resting on the trigger.

Time seemed to stand still as Eric took a deep breath, exhaled slowly, and squeezed the trigger. A resounding crack pierced the air as the Ruger 10/22 Magnum unleashed its power. The bullet raced through the distance, finding its mark with precision, striking the ground squirrel with lethal force.

The ground squirrel fell lifeless, instantly succumbing to the hunter’s shot. Eric approached the lifeless creature, his expression solemn. He understood the circle of life and the roles each animal played in the delicate ecosystem.

Carefully, he retrieved the ground squirrel and began making his way back towards his home. As he walked, he couldn’t shake the feeling of responsibility that weighed on his shoulders. Whiskers depended on him to provide, and he had fulfilled that obligation.

Returning to his backyard, Eric found Whiskers patiently waiting near the porch, its beady eyes fixated on the hunter. He knelt down and gently placed the ground squirrel before the weasel. Whiskers wasted no time, pouncing on the offering, relishing in the sustenance it provided.

Eric watched with a sense of satisfaction as Whiskers devoured the ground squirrel. He knew that by eliminating the surplus of ground squirrels, he was helping to maintain a healthy balance in the ecosystem. The cycle of life required some to thrive while others had to perish, and he had played his part.

From that day forward, Eric and Whiskers formed an unlikely bond. The weasel continued to visit his backyard, and Eric made it his duty to ensure that Whiskers never went hungry. Together, they became silent companions, connected through the intricate dance of nature, bound by a mutual understanding of their roles in the grand tapestry of life.
