One day as young boys were herding cows they saw a weasel running along a wall. The dog followed him and killed him. The boys caught him and threw him into another field. about an hour after when the boys were eating their supper they saw a weasel at the window and he began tapping at it. The boys would not go out but they put out the dog thinking he would kill him but it was the weasel that killed the dog and he ran away then.
