Postal workers wondering about wiggling package bound for Puerto Rico find ferret

April 24, 2010 | 10:26 am

Postal authorities in Lynchburg, Va., discovered a ferret after checking out a package marked for overnight delivery to Puerto Rico that started moving on its own.

Postal workers contacted a postal inspector after they spotted the wiggling package.

After trying unsuccessfully to track down the sender, the inspector got a search warrant and the next day animal control officers opened the box.

Inside they found the ferret, which was accompanied by a cage, toys and food.

The Roanoke Valley SPCA named the ferret Stamps and put it up for adoption and this week, Craig Bradley and his wife took the ferret home.

They’re the cofounders of the Big Lick Ferret Shelter & Hospice.
