In 2010, Wildlife Images adopted two new education ambassadors from the Lane Area Ferret Lovers rescue, Peanut and Winston. Both ferrets were adults when they arrived at our facility and not much is known about their past. Sadly, Winston passed away in April 2016. Often animals that get adopted as pets when they are young turn out to be too high maintenance for their owners. Ferrets are incredible animals with their hilarious antics, playful energy, and curiosity but they can be quite a handful if you are not ready to meet their needs. They also have a distinct musk that permeates the entire household and sometimes people don’t realize what they are signing up for when bringing them home as pets.
