Man bitten stealing ferrets to pay drugs debt

Quote
A Scottish man was bitten while trying to steal four ferrets which he planned to sell to pay off a drug debt, Inverness Sheriff Court has heard.

James Marshall, from Smithton, Inverness, broke into a shed with another man on 20 February and took two of the ferrets.

The other two escaped.



The 20-year-old’s actions were captured on CCTV installed in the shed. Marshall was banned from leaving home between 22:00-06:00 and ordered to carry out 175 hours community work.

He had denied stealing four ferrets, four guinea pigs, three adult rabbits, four baby rabbits, a packet of bird feed, a plastic container, a skipping rope and two hutches.

Marshall also denied attempting to open a hutch and attempting to steal a rabbit.

However, he later admitted stealing the ferrets and attempting to steal a rabbit from a hutch.

The thefts were alleged to have happened while he was on bail.

Fiscal depute Karen Smith told the court that the owner of the ferrets was alerted to the incident by a security light being turned on in his garden.

The man found the door to his shed open and the four animals missing.

Ms Smith said: “He had CCTV installed and he could see two males going into the shed.

One of them was Marshall who seemed to be bitten on the hand by one of the ferrets.

This allowed two of them to escape and Marshall removed the other two.”

Three days later, Marshall was seen attempting to break into a rabbit hutch to steal a rabbit.

His solicitor John McColl told the court: “It is a very odd case and displays peculiar behaviour. It seems the idea to steal four ferrets was not his but the person with whom he was acting. He came up with the hair brained scheme because he wanted to sell them to pay off a drug debt.”

Mr McColl added: “My client is an animal lover and is disgusted with himself and is extremely sorry.”

Zorgon, this is just a great pic of a real cutie! That ferret seems to just say to us - "absolutely not a worry in the world"!

Are ferrets actually always the cutest, when they are asleep - ie, long teeth are not so "cute" looking?? :))

Fangs?



LOL about 99% of the time when they show fangs they are yawning. unless you torment them they rarely bite. The vet got nipped though when we took one of ours in for a shot. But he figured it was a fair deal as he was poking the little thing with a big needle   :o

But it seems the Military has found new recruits... I need to find that patch the critter is wearing... Looks like a Black Ops Ferret Corp :P

Ferret Invasion

Quote
Beijing is being invaded.

Overrun.

There's nothing you can do to stop the swarm.

Before you know it, they will be everywhere, maybe even inside your own home.

And what is this new threat?

It's FERRETS!

The word "ferret" is appropriately derived from the Latin word "feronum," which means "thief" - they often hide small belongings of their owners.

Ferrets love to jump and run. They're very active and naughty. Now, more and more Chinese people love to keep it as a pet.

These little friends can stay with you for more than 10 years if you take good care of them. They often climb behind furniture and also collect and hide things they like. Ferrets can sleep for 18 hours a day, and they won't mind to be locked in the cage when their owners go out for work, but owners still need to let them play outside the cage everyday.

VIDEO HERE

Seems they can understand Chinese as well :D

The curious world of ferrets

Quote
Michelle Whitfield didn't know what a ferret was when her mother bought her one, but she soon fell in love with this curious little animal.

"Whoever coined the phrase 'curiosity killed the cat' had obviously never met a ferret," Wendy Hansard says.

"They have to know everything."

The Illawarra-based ferret breeder is wrestling one of her furry mammals as she tells me about her growing collection.

It's coming into ferret breeding season, which means the already busy Hansard household becomes even busier.

Wendy is out to change the negative perception of ferrets.

She says they're often associated with rabbit hunting for their ability to scurry down rabbit holes, and people assume they bite.

She sells her ferrets on the condition they're not used for hunting, and says they're clean animals that can be trained and enjoyed like any domestic pet.

Yorkshire Regiment

Okay I found them LOL I just wrote the UK military and they were very helpful





1st Battalion, The Yorkshire Regiment (Prince of Wales's Own) has two highly trained 'specialists'

FERRETS!!!  1st Battalion  Ferrets named "Imphal" & "Quebec"

About the Regiment - British Army Website
... Regiment has two regimental pets - two ferrets named 'Imphal' and 'Quebec'.

To bad they are White Rose :P  But then that old War of the Roses is over, right?

Are there rabbits in Iraq?



Quote
You've heard of Yorkshire Terriers - well now there's Yorkshire Ferrets.1st Battalion The Yorkshire Regiment have just taken delivery of two new regimental mascots just before they leave for Iraq. The mascots - two ferrets named "Imphal" and "Quebec" after two of the Regiment's battle honours - were a gift from local people in Yorkshire, a tradition dating back to WW1. The ferrets will be kitted out in tiny uniforms in regimental colours and will form up on parade with the Battalion - on leads of course.
“The morale boost is amazing,” said Captain Laurence Roche. “The soldiers are fiercely proud of these things.” And there good for catching rabbits too

British Army deploys ferret forces to Münster

Quote
British forces stationed in Münster have welcomed furry reinforcements in the form of two royal regimental ferrets just prior to their deployment in Iraq.

“The morale boost is amazing,” British Army spokesman Captain Laurence Roche told The Local on Thursday. “The soldiers are fiercely proud of these things.”

The two mammalian mascots “Imphal” and “Quebec” recently travelled from England to join the 1st Battalion The Yorkshire Regiment at the German base, which is home to the British Army’s 20th Armoured Brigade. The pair, named after battle honours, were a traditional gift from Yorkshire residents and have been adopted as official pets.

“We're not exactly sure, but we believe the tradition comes from the First World War when soldiers used ferrets when foraging for food,” Roche said, adding that the wee carnivores were used to hunt rabbits for the soldiers.

But these modern ferrets are purely symbolic and won't be along to supplement rations in November when the 300 soldiers from the battalion nicknamed “The Yorkshire Warriors” head to southern Iraq.

The ferrets will remain home in a cage just in front of the barracks, where they play a central part of military life, taking part in parades in their own tiny uniforms in regimental colours. When the troops are in formation, the ferrets are even allowed to scamper around the soldier's boots.

“They have a jacket in Brunswick (Braunschweig) green with a capbadge on the side of it and they have little hats and the regimental leads which are exactly the same as our stable belts. They’re the pride of the Battalion,” Provo Corporal Norman Shay said in an army statement.

The Yorkshire Warriors are the only British battalion to have ferrets, but a handful of units also have animal mascots, including goats, a horse and an Irish Wolfhound, Roche said.

Ferrets save millennium concert



Quote
A group of highly trained ferrets has been recruited to save a millennium pop concert in London.

When millions of people watch coverage of the Party in the Park concert in Greenwich on Millennium Eve, they can thank a team of "electricians" lent by the National Ferret Association.

The concert organisers have hired the ferrets to lay TV, lighting and sound cables along the tunnels under the stage in Greenwich Park - a novel way to get around the high cost of electricians' wages over the millennium period.
