A pet ferrel has been born in China, and it’s already transforming the way we think about ferrets.
Peter Sagan, founder of the International Society for Ferrel Rescue and a professor at the University of Florida, is leading a team that has captured and bred ferrets to improve their breeding skills.
“In my opinion, we are at the very beginning of the next wave of breeding ferrets,” Sagan told the WSJ.
“And the first ferrels were born in 2001.”PETA, a pet rescue group, is also pushing ferrel breeders to start breeding ferret lines that are not only more intelligent, but also more expensive.
“We think that by adopting a ferrel we can help save lives in the future,” said PETA spokesman Mark Osterman.
“Ferrets have been bred to be docile, docile to humans, docility to the environment and docility in their environment.
And that is one of the reasons why we are fighting so hard to get them out of the pet supply.”
The new ferrel comes from a strain of ferret that is believed to have been imported from Vietnam.
That strain of breed has been found in dogs in China and Vietnam.
The Vietnamese strain is a little more advanced in intelligence than other ferrel strains, so it’s possible that the ferrel strain is more intelligent than the other two strains.
