Just when you think you’ve heard it all, wait… there’s always another moron waiting in the wings. A Washington man was recently attacked in his apartment by a man carrying a dead weasel.

The suspect burst into an apartment, surprising the man residing there. When the victim asked why the other man was carrying a weasel, the attacker replied, “it’s not a weasel, it’s a marten.” He then punched the victim in the nose and fled the apartment.

It seems the attacker went there looking for his girlfriend, who used to date the victim. Police found him later, arguing with the woman he’d been looking for, and at least got some explanation as to the dead animal. He stated he’d found it dead, but there’s no word as to why he took it with him on his quest for the girlfriend.

I suppose that if you really want to scare the daylights out of someone, bursting into their home with a dead animal depicts just the right mix of crazy and reckless, so maybe that’s what he was going for. Oh, and as a side note, martens are a member of the weasel family. Apparently the attacker isn’t so dumb after all…
