"Man with dead weasel accused of assault"

Wed Jun 8, 3:25 pm ET

HOQUIAM, Wash. Police say a man was carrying a dead weasel when he burst into an apartment and assaulted a man in Washington state.

The victim asked, "Why are you carrying a weasel?" Police said the attacker answered, "It's not a weasel, it's a marten," then punched him in the nose and fled.

The attacker was apparently looking for his girlfriend and had gone to her former boyfriend's apartment Monday where the victim was a guest.

KXRO reports he left the carcass behind.

Police later found the 33-year-old Hoquiam man arguing with his girlfriend at another location and arrested him after a fight.

He said he had found the marten dead near Hoquiam, but police don't know why he carried it with him.

A marten is a member of the weasel family."

Oh- so that explains it!

Maybe he was trying to win his gf back with a thoughtful homemade marten stole?

He was probably tired of all the grief puzzy was giving him so he figured he try another furry critter!
