Species Identification Confidence:
Probably. I'm a bit uncertain
Individual(s) Observed (seen)
Working at the gate house at Clearwater Paper in Lewiston when I observed what I thought was a large cat moving through some brush to my right at about 60 yards away. Then it exited the brush and I caught a glimpse of it crossing the main roadway. Realized it wasn't a cat thought it might be a raccoon. Then it reappeared in front of me about50 to 60 yards away on a clear hill side and I realized it was not a raccoon but a very large member of the weasel family. The animal proceeded into some vehicle parts at the entrance to Forest Auto Parts. It was a dark color, like some domestic mink that I have seen. I would estimate weight at between 10 and 15 pounds.
