CINCINNATI — Ohio wildlife officials are asking from help from the public in tracking weasels across the state.

According to the Ohio Division of Wildlife, furbearer biologists are working with colleagues from multiple states to survey weasels in the eastern part of the United States.

Biologists are currently testing out different lures and bait at camera trap stations to see if they can find a good one to attract weasels.

Biologists are looking to track the weasels' populations and need your help to be a weasel watcher.
