Do you live in California? Are you considering getting a job there?
Ferrets are illegal in California, and the rest of the world thinks this is rather dumb. In all the years, there have been NO feral colonies either in California (they may be illegal but there are lots of ferrets in CA) or surrounding states where they are legal.
If you own a ferret in California, you risk having your good buddy seized and killed or at the very least deported to a neighboring state.
Please join the effort to legalize ferrets in California. Join the Ferret Legalization Effort. If you live in California, sign the petition. If you don’t live in California, donate money to help the effort and spread the word near and far.
