Ferrets return home to Meeteetse


Ranchers Lenox Baker and Allen Hogg welcomed blackfooted ferrets back home to their ranches in Meetettse, Wyoming, this week. Among the world’s most endangered mammals, the blackfooted ferrets were actually thought to be extinct when one was discovered on the Hogg family’s Lazy BV Ranch in the 1980s. The remaining ferrets were captured and bred in captivity and are now being released on volunteer ranches. For some great photos and more on this story, check out the articles in the Casper Star Tribune, ABC News and the Powell Tribune and also this news story from before the release.
