“The Polecat is one of the Mustelinæ, akin to the marten, but with a broader head, a blunter snout, and a much shorter tail. It has a shorter neck and a stouter body than the weasel. Two glands near the root of the tail emit a highly offensive smell. It makes immense havoc in poultry yards, rabbit warrens, and among hares and partidges, killing everything which it can overpower."—(Charles Leonard-Stuart, 1911)
