Cali made it illegal to own ferrets way back when because they were getting out and killing chickens. People who do not take their ferrets to the vets are just as bad as dog owners who don't...

I don't think there will ever be a breeding ban on dogs or anything else. They may just as well try to put a breeding ban on chickens and cows. :P

The reason I say it that way is that we all know that there are multiple breeding facilities that produce so many dogs they may as well be industrial.

BTW- I'm not saying that I like that. It makes me sick. But that's just how it is in this sicko world.

I'd just ignore it.

If you live in a decently secluded area and have good neighbours...
If you didn't advertise your pups, and only sold to people through word of mouth (which one could argue breeders should be doing anyways)...

Well, if it's like every other animal law (and many many non-animal laws), they probably wouldn't find out.

A good breeder does right by the breed, not necessarily the government. Being a good person doesn't correspond with being a lawful person. It can but it doesn't have to. In my opinion. Obviously many disagree. That's ok. Most of us don't even share the same country lol.

But honestly what has the country come to if you can't breed your own dog???ridiculous to me. I mean that is getting into 1984 crap.
agreed

I think that is just a false rumor. You can't believe everything you read. I don't see how it could be enforced.

Where are you getting that from? Ferrets are extremely ill equipped to survive in the wild. It would like scottish terriers forming a pack in the woods and going feral. Not gonna last long. And seeing as they are inside pets with a very low survival rate when turned loose, I highly doubt enough chickens were killed for legislation to pass. It's much more likely dogs would kill chickens than ferrets.

LoL! Not to mention, ferrets have such poor eye sight I don't think they could even see a chicken until they were right at it! And by then the chicken would probably have pecked it on the head.

our ferrets in the USA come from british pet stock but even some of these have all the tools of a good hunting ferret and could survive just fine on lizards, rodents & small birds.

I think it's a lot more likely that if the ferret scenario is true, some escaped euro minks or something did it and someone with an agenda decided to blame ferrets.

Our ferret got out once. He was lost for a week. When my brother found him he was laying under a pallet in the woodshed, shivering, starving, and near death. It's not like there wasn't plenty of mice in the woodshed.
