Markings on the neck

Are the markings on the neck (spots/jagged 'points' of dark fur) not indicative of a weasel? Was it too big for that?

Too big

It was too big for a weasel I am quite familiar with both animals and definitely a stoat but good question to ask Gill as lot's of people do get them wrong.
