Thank you for correcting a common mistake in identity Mr. Paull. Having been involved in domestic pet ferret issues for several years, I can tell you that we get reports of "feral ferrets" on a regular basis, only to find that they are native long tailed weasels. On the very rare occasion that a pet ferret is found outside, it is usually emaciated, dehydrated and in desperate need of veterinary attention.
