|Californians for Ferret Legilazation|
There are several areas in the United States where it is illegal to own ferrets, based among other considerations, on the misinformed belief that they are wild animals. Possibly the most prominent "Ferret Free Zone" is the state of California. Is it surprising that there is a group of ferret lovers dedicated to correcting this oversight? These good folks are known as Californians for Ferret Legalization, and their web site is here.
The level of willful ignorance and stubbornness shown by the supporters of the ban is appalling, but then I'm naive enough about politics to expect honesty and rationality. The coordinator of the CFL is Jeanne Carley, and she and her cohorts are willing to work long and hard to overturn the ban. It isn't easy and they've got a long way to go. And they need help. There is an address on the page for donations, so what are you waiting for? Go and do it! NOW!!
