I untied him from the tree and then we both heard a noise from the forest. He was in full alert so I waited to see if we could get a glimpse of something. We weren't disappointed. About 20 feet from us an animal emerged I have never seen before. It was a weasel like animal the size of a large house cat, low to the ground with sleek looking fur. The most notable feature I saw was a stripe on its head and neck. The animal saw us and immediately retreated, I saw there was a second smaller one behind the first.
Spencer was overly excited so I decided to take the long way back so we didn't further disturb the animals. I got home and looked at the animal guide but the critter wasn't there so I turned to the internet to discover I saw two Greater Grisons. I have seen their tracks in the river in the past but all of these years living here and I have never seen the animal.
