Dangers of Inbreeding Ferrets
Sadie & Lolita are polecat jill kits. They were seized recently after their irresponsible owner had been inbreeding his ferrets, resulting in these two being visually impaired.
All of their siblings were either put to sleep or died due to severe spinal disabilities as a direct result of inbreeding.
This is not the first, but hopefully the last occasion, that North Pennine Ferret Welfare has to take care
of ferret owners acting without due care in selection of ferret partnerships.
