Ferrets: where to find wild, indigenous? (for chipmunk control)
Would anyone know if it's possible to get an indigenous ferret colony established? Perhaps by the US Fish & Wildlife?
Despite a healthy hawk and owl population, the chipmunk population has exploded and has now reached such levels that something effective have to be done.
Can native, indigenous ferrets be purchased anywhere? We used to hear the wild weasels/ferrets' distinctive calls in the surrounding woods, but I never hear them anymore.
Thanks for posting ideas and, if possible, sources for live ferrets (not pet ferrets, of course), but good old-fashioned wild, indigenous ferrets.
