Really BIG Ferrets





'Humongous' ferrets draw crowds to Flintshire rescue centre

Quote
TWO giant ferrets have become star attractions at a Flintshire animal rescue centre.

Flintshire Wildlife and Pet Rescue Centre in Holywell has recently taken in the two creatures after they were found wandering the streets In Greenfield.

Rescue centre owner Elfyn Pierce-Jones, 59, owns 10 ferrets, but said he had never seen such big ones.

zorgon, that video with the quicksand was pretty exciting!

After watching it, I did have a "relative thought" - the quicksand reminds me of the U. S. federal tax code I have also been talking about :))

Ferrets key to bridging the digital divide between cities and rural areas

Quote
Specially trained ferrets are being used to deliver broadband to rural areas following groundbreaking techniques used by an internet provider.

The animals have been used by Virgin Media for over a year to help lay cables for its broadband service, the company has disclosed.

The ferrets wear jackets fitted with a microchip which is able to analyse any breaks or damage in the underground network.

The development could help increase broadband in current Internet "dead zones", giving access to inaccessible places, and and helping bridge the 'digital divide'.

http://www.telegraph.co.uk/

Some ferrets work at NASA, running cables through access spaces too small for a human to go through. A ferret's speed, relative strength, intelligence, and ability to be trained makes them ideally suited for this task.

Rumor has it that ferrets were instrumental in the construction of several U.S. Air Force and Navy craft, running wire and cable. A ferret was also used to string television cables so the Prince of Wales' wedding could be broadcast to the rest of the world. Ferrets are also used to help out in the telephone and computer industry, to run guide strings for the fiber optics used in fiber optic technology. When a ferret is helping to run wire or cable, a strong but lightweight string is tied to the ferret's harness. The ferret is then released into the pipe that will eventually contain the wires or cables. The ferret then races through the pipe to get a treat at the other end, usually while being called by a whistle or squeaker. When the ferret emerges from the opposite end of the pipe, the string is removed from the ferret's harness and tied to the wire or cable to be pulled back through the pipe.

Weasel Wabbit Hunting

Quote
Ferrets are still widely used in Britain, Europe and Australia to hunt rabbits. It is illegal to hunt rabbits using ferrets in the United States, although some areas permit ferrets to hunt rats, provided their owner has the appropriate permit. Ferrets are still used as rodent exterminators in many parts of the world.

How do you catch rabbits with ferrets, well quite simply the ferrets do down the holes and rabbits come out fast.

On occasions the rabbit will run down a dead end in the warren and be trapped by the ferret which may kill it or sit and guard the animal. When this happens the spade comes out and the digging begins. The ferrets are fitted with a radio transmitter which allows us to follow their movements underground and locate them.

zorgon, it sounds to me like you may be on the verge of starting a "Business" involving ferrets - breeding, raising, showing, feeding, doctoring, and associated costs for housing, care, and marketing for potential sales. The possibilities just never end! Why, in no time, if you would be willing to work a few nights, and maybe come in the house after dark, you probably would get "RICH" before you even know it!

And, you may even need to look into possible grants available for studying ferret lifestyles and birthing habits, over an extended period. Like, maybe answering the question of whether the ferret uses his teeth while mating!! All of this may even require the use of "part-time employees" (family members of course), and their associated expenses.

Oops! But, then you did say you didn't have the will to get rich................................!  ;)
