Ferrets still banned in California, but supporters press on

October 10, 2008 | 11:01 am


It's political season, and that means people who believe the state should legalize ferret ownership are active.

Only California and Hawaii keep ferrets on the banned list. In 2004, Gov. Schwarzenegger vetoed a ferret amnesty bill even though, as he noted, he once starred with a ferret in "Kindergarten Cop."

Not to be discourged, ferret lovers will hold the third annual "Legalize Ferrets Revival" on Saturday at the King's Inn in San Diego's Mission Valley.

Candidates for the State Senate and Assembly have been invited to address the group. Go here for more information about the revival or Ferrets Anonymous.
