‘Barkley’ and ‘Celo’ are our Domestic Ferrets. The Domestic Ferret originates in Europe where they were used to hunt mice around the house and barn. Today, we keep them as pets. Learn all about these amazing members of the mustelid family (which includes badgers, otters, weasels, mink, fishers, martins, and skunks!) and their special hunting techniques. Saskatchewan was once home to the Black-footed ferret. The last wild ferret in Saskatchewan was seen in 1937. We’ll look back at the history of Saskatchewan’s grasslands and find out what happened to them, and what is being done to fix the problem.
