Crossword Genius

Love upsetting animal (4)


I believe the answer is:


'animal' is the definition.

'love upsetting' is the wordplay.
'upsetting' indicates anagramming the letters.
'love' anagrammed gives 'VOLE'.

(Other definitions for vole that I've seen before include "Fieldmouse" , "River-bank rodent" , "A small plant-eating rodent - love it" , "River bank rodent" , "A little rodent" .)

I've seen this clue in The Mirror.
