Weatherstripping Wonít come out of kerf

Iím trying to replace the weatherstrip but itís literally pulling away from the Kerf leaving the material in the kerf. I tried to pull it out with a small flat head and using needle nose plyees but itís in tight as if they installed The frame around the weatherstripping

My guess would be that it's old enough that it isn't a kerf per se. The wood stop may be removable and it's nailed over the top of it. Would need a photo from farther back to have a better idea what we are looking at

My thoughts too. The weatherstripping is clearly in the groove. Can I just remove everything and leave the excess flush to the groove and replace with a stick-on weather stripping (e.g. non kerf)?

I wouldn't even recommend stick on weatherstripping for a doghouse.

You can get the kind that are attached to an aluminum extrusion, and screw them on.
