weasel in the garden

spotted a large weasel-like thing in our apartment garden this afternoon. it's about two feet long and has yellowish fur, short but upright ears. the way it ran reminded me of the loping bounding way that Toddy, our toddycat (palm civet) runs. I think it's a pine marten although our security guards call it a "weasel" in Chinese (literally yellow mouse wolf). this was the first time I saw the mustelid in broad daylight, usually I see them at night when I'm bringing Sally on her rounds. needless to say Sally got very excited and her terrier instincts kicked in. she tried chasing after the weasel/marten and went sniffing after the tracks.
