Ermine is small mammal that belongs to the family of weasels. It can be found in subarctic and arctic parts of the North America, Europe and Asia. Ermine inhabits woodlands, marshes, scrublands and areas near the rivers. Ermines are welcome in many local communities because of their ability to eradicate pest. Unfortunately, they are often on a target of hunters because of their fur that is still popular in the fashion industry. Despite that, number of ermines in the wild is still large and stable.
