To Kill a Stoat

Animation / USA / 4 min.

To Kill a Stoat is a homage to an old Irish superstition that stoats were dark faeries in disguise, carried ceremonies for their dead, and were venomous like snakes! Because of this, it would be dreadfully unlucky for a person to harm or kill a stoat. A modern trapper forgets these long headed warnings of danger and hinds himself snared in a trap of the worst kind.
