PET EUROPEAN FERRETS: A HAZARD TO PUBLIC HEALTH, SMALL LIVESTOCK AND WILDLIFE

California DHS Report on the alleged dangers of ferrets as pets.

The report is authored by Denny G Constantine, an expert in bats with no ferret experience.

The report was widely panned for its unscientific approach and use of anecdotal material.
