I have wanted a ferret for as long as I can remember, but I live in California so I can't have one. I have always wondered why they are illegal but I never get a good answer. Thank you.

short answer is because the California wildlife officials are worried about escaped ore released ferrets upsetting the delicate balance of wildlife in CA.

Yes fish and game have a blind spot when it comes to ferrets,but as a shelter person told we have found a lot of strays that had to be smuggled out to rescue of put down. So if you have them don't let them escape,because that is what they to best
