Weasel still loose in Zealandia

The weasel that left tracks inside Zealandia wildlife sanctuary last week has been captured – but only on video.

Footage of the elusive mustelid has been recorded on a camera trap, which confirmed for staff that they were working in the right area of the sanctary.

One hundred and ten DOC200 traps were placed with bait last week but not set, to gain the animal’s trust in the unfamiliar objects.

They were set and rebaited yesterday.
