Predator trapper raising a baby stoat to better understand them

To help make NZ predator free by 2025, a dedicated trapper is raising a baby stoat to better understand them.

Dr Andrew Veale has been hand rearing a baby stoat to look closely at her smells and vocalisations in the hope he can learn how to better eradicate them altogether.

Dr Veale introduces Jesse to his stoat in the studio.
