they usually kill much more prey than they can eat,so i'm surprised that he killed just one hen.

Looks like about the same size as our male (Bart he's a rescue). The claws aren't so bad. They use them mostly for digging, so while they can scratch, they are not like cats claws.

Nope! I thinks it's cute too.

I think he's cute and looks like my "Smoky" I used to have. And yes, he was that big. He was a big ****. Down in Georgia we called skunks "pole cats"

here's quote

The European polecat is the sole ancestor of the ferret, which was domesticated more than 2000 years ago for the purpose of hunting vermin.[12] The species has otherwise been historically viewed negatively by humans. In the British Isles especially, the polecat was persecuted by gamekeepers, and became synonymous with promiscuity in early English literature. During modern times, the polecat is still scantly represented in popular culture when compared to other rare British mammals, and misunderstandings of its behaviour still persist in some rural areas.[13] As of 2008, it is classed by the IUCN as Least Concern due to its wide range and large numbers.[1]
