Black-footed Ferrets Training For Release
The black-footed ferret’s dinner is simple. Over 90% of the ferret’s diet is prairie dog. In the wild, the ferret spends its entire life in a prairie dog colony. The dog excavates the burrows where the ferret finds shelter from weather and predators. Ferrets have their kits deep in the burrows. And ferrets eat the prairie dogs. That’s like having a grocery store in the basement of your home!!
It is vital for ferrets to learn to kill prairie dogs for their survival before they are released in the wild.
