My friend, neighbor and Fire Chief, Phil Schlief, shared these photos he took of a weasel family moving out from under his porch to new lodgings! The little ones couldn't quite make the stairs themselves, so the mother would grab them by the back of the neck and pull them up. It's a pretty lucky and usual thing to see!
