MISINFORMATION of the Week -- No. 10 in a Series

The State of California says:

"Rabid ferrets may occur any place at any time."

"Pet European Ferrets..." p. 24
California Department of Health Services
December 1988


What others say:

"When asked about the threat form rabies, I pointed out that it was such an unlikely scenario that unless an owner had the disease and bit his ferret, it would be difficult to imagine how a housebound and frequently cagebound animal could become exposed to the disease."

Roger Caras, President
The American Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals, ASPCA
Letter, September 20, 1995
