MISINFORMATION of the Week -- No. 1 in a Series

The State of California says:

"The state of Massachusetts has adopted a law (with) restrictions against ferrets because... wild ferrets deciminated a population of endangered Terns."

Jack C. Parnell, Director
Calif. DEPT. OF FISH & GAME
Memo, February 26, 1986


But others say:

"There has never been a recorded case of Tern predation by a ferret in Massachusetts. In fact, I have never heard of such a case anywhere in North America."

Thomas M. French, PhD
Assistant Director
DIV. OF FISHERIES & WILDLIFE
Commonwealth of Massachusetts
Letter, February 20, 1991
