My husband & I came across these on our hike today: which ones can you identify?

image image image image image image image image image

Here are the choices for images above: rabbit, weasel, partridge, wolf, mouse, deer mouse & deer mouse running, & 'end of the line'.

Some of the photographs are the same animal, only up close.
We sited most of them within a few hundred metres (yards), but we didn't see any of the live animals themselves.
My husband looked up the tracks to confirm them, and I'll let you know what he found, to the best of our knowledge.

It was a great walk, just today, with the sun shining and around 6 degrees Celcuis.
Where we stopped for a snack didn't have any snow and it was southern exposure, quite pleasant, on a lake we enjoy frequenting in our region.
A grand day, all in all!

I'm not a hunter, but I'm guessing # 6 and 7 are wolf.
#8 Partridge.
#9 Weasel.
#s2 and 3 Deer Mouse.
#4 Mouse.
And #s 1 and 5 Rabbit.

I don't know what an "end of the line" is.
Are they ferocious?

Great pics.. Thanks!

I doubt we'll be seeing that much snow around these parts for quite awhile.
That's OK by me.

Ah.... That clears it up.
Lucky bird.... Unlucky mouse.

For animals in the wild, it must be like living in a neighborhood of serial killers everyday.

*Oh!*
The 'end of the line' meant that the little rodent was caught, mid tracks, by a bird of some sort -- either by a hawk or something of the like-- we've seen this a couple of times now, where once a wing feather imprint was even seen in the snow where the rodent tracks disappeared.

Hi K, my guess is that you are correct in everything, haha!
Sorry it's been so long since I posted this & didn't answer -- pretty 'stinky' eh?

Like I said to Phil below, I'll have to check back with my husband as to which tracks were witch -- I wrote it down somewhere, but don't ask me where!
-Ah, I think I just have to check the pics, that would likely give me the up-&-up...

I remember that zero Celsius is freezing and a hundred is boiling. It must have been brisk. The small tracks resemble cat paws. I will guess a mouse. I have never tracked animals. I am stomped.

Oh boy, I'll have to check back with my husband as to what's what now, haha! I didn't realize it was so long ago already since I'd posted this, sorry I hadn't gotten back to you sooner.
