I really want a ferret! But I already have a dog so I think asking for one would be pushing it.

They are exotic pets so some states, even just individual cities and counties have banned them as "wild animals". The state of California banned them.

I have 4 ferrets, btw. 3 boys and just last weekend we obtained a girl. Poor thing is almost 4 and has never been handled before, so she bites really freaking hard. But we're working with her and so far it's good.

How long have you had your ferret?

I came across this news story the other day in which a ferret bit 7 fingers off a baby's hands.

While an unusual circumstance it is things like that which reinforce these sorts of classifications.

Ferrets are scary.

That said, how many times has a cat clawed up a kid? And then there's dogs, which have killed many a child and caused others permanent injuries.
And when it comes to it, I've never heard of a ferret killing anyone.


Point being, any animal in captivity is how it's trained to be. But ferrets are no harder to tame down than dogs/cats, often a good bit easier.

I love ferrets. I've heard they can be a bit aggressive, however, we had two at my school, and they were the sweetest things. I guess it's really all in how you raise the animal, treat it with love and care and it will love in return.


’Twas brillig, and the slithy toves
Did gyre and gimble in the wabe;
All mimsy were the borogoves,
And the [mome raths] outgrabe.

It is ABSOLUTELY how you raise the animal. Anyway, where were the parents?? They should have a) heard their child SCREAMING b) been supervising their ferret while not in its cage.

My ferrets wrestle each other but will NOT bite my hand (I nip trained them as kits) even if I'm interacting with them while they're wrestling. They cuddle with me and take naps with me often.

That family's ferret must have been very scared or very hungry (and raised to eat raw meat- ferrets have olfactory imprinting at a young age and are very picky eaters) to have attacked a sleeping baby.
