Amazing Stoat Rescue

As many of our visitors have come to appreciate, one of Dartmoor Zoo's best assets is its wonderful, woodland setting. We do our best to keep is as natural as possible to encourage local wildlife. Recently our efforts were rewarded when we managed to capture on film a fascinating example of nature at work.

Two baby stoats had managed to find themselves exposed and without parental protection right in the middle of our walk-through enclosure.

At the time we were getting some footage for our Behind the Scenes DVD with Dominic from ViewhearAs our curator, Colin Northcott explains, we were incredibly luck to witness the events at all, let alone catch them on film.


  1. Awwww, that's incredible! Wonderful to see them like this and the babies are incredibly cute! Great footage. :)

  2. Awwww they're so cute!! I love Dartmoor Zoo for exactly the same reasons as the guy in the video said! xxx
