Stoat or weasel

Typical thin twists of stoats weasels if the trap was not srung the suggest stoat as weasel would investigate and get caught

Not a Vole

I am certain it isn't one of the vole species, their faeces are usually small and short, though not rounded much. I also agree with Derek, sometimes Stoats and Weasels come inside to see where the voles/mice have been when the traps are set in prebait and I have heard about Weasels getting caught in Longworth Traps.
