Stoat kills rabbit ten times its size – Life | BBC


A young stoat. And it’s not alone. These wild games are too much to resist. Stalking, chasing and ambushing: all practiced in play. Soon the young stoats must hunt for themselves and then these athletic skills will be crucial. It’s September in the English countryside. This stoat is about to take on an adversary ten times it’s size. It’s too dangerous to rush straight in. Instead, the stoat’s aim is to wear the rabbit down. The rabbit is flagging and the stoat’s stamina is starting to make a difference. But stamina alone is not enough, the rabbit must still be overpowered. A bite to the back of the neck and a kill. The incredible agility of the stoat practiced since it was a kit was just enough to swing the balance.

  5. Yea he had a vendetta against that rabbit, he ran right past the other rabbits that were just sitting there, and that rabbit saw the stoat and remembered that time he did him dirty and that's why he was sprinting.

  6. Reminds me of Grade school tag. All the kids around just standing there and you only chasing your crush! 😂

  8. reminds me of the remake of mogli and the junglebook (2018) when Baghira only went after mogli during the big test

  9. Where are the vegans? Doesn’t the stoat know it can get all of its nutritional requirements from vegetables? Lol

  10. Where the hell are all these rabbits just hanging out chilling? Some starving people would be thrilled with a nice rabbit stew.. there were a bunch

  11. Cause a rabbit is a bitch. Not one of his little hopping friends did anything but watch. The stout was like I'm gonna nap then come back for the one that looked at me and have himfor dinner 😂

  12. You know 1:22 grew up in the rough side of town.
    Witnesses a murder, *turns head*, no officer i wasn't there.

  13. I wanna ask you scientist people out there a serious question: is there anyone who knows what makes rabbits wake up and go out for some food every single day? imagine being a rabbit in the wild, most of the carnivore animals attack you on every occasion, you lose friends and family members with each passing day but there is no rabbit whose attitude is like "i got attacked yesterday and feelin depressed so im gonna stay inside my underground nest today" or "i dont wanna give birth to another child in this cruel world of wolves and stoats and coyotes". they still keep breeding like crazy and raising their children, keep going out for some fresh grass each day and they dont care if this is the last time they eating grass or not. look at the guy at the end of the video watching another rabbit is being killed so peacefully, he even changes his position so he can get a better view. i googled what makes rabbits so peaceful and stolid but found nothing about their survival mechanism except methods of measuring stress levels of animals, etc. anyone who may help me to find out more about their depression-free life? all scientific material including articles, documentaries, etc. are appreciated. thanks in advance.

  14. I watched a stoat catch a rabbit and then my dog stole it. I took the rabbit of my dog and left it for the stoat. Check out my hunting channel. https://youtu.be/TkjwATxK2ps

  15. Bruh why did nature make rabbits so weak? They can't even kill animals that are way smaller than them. Come on now. Am I the only one who wants to see rabbits make a stand and kill predators?
