Legalizing Ferrets in California

345 Signatures Goal: 500

Currently, in the state of California, ferrets (Scientific Name: Mustela putorius furo )are classified as an illegal animal to own, sell or buy. I, like many others am hoping to change this within the coming years. Out of the 48 other states, California and Hawaii are the only two states which ban the ferret as a pet. How can 48 other states be wrong Ferrets are quite the comical creature and make a great pet, even with children! If only we were allowed to legalize them now. I would like to send this petition via snail-mail out to Governor Arnold Swarzenegger by April 10th, 2005. Already, in November of 2004, SB 89 (Decriminalizes current ferret owners in California) had passed each and every hurdle in it\'s way while undergoing discussion in the California State Assembaly, and was sent to the governor himself. Unfortunately, he thought the bill too was just too bureaucratic to sign into an official law, so perhaps in the future it will be brought back. Please, if you too are a ferret lover, sign this petition! Help Californians legalize ferrets!

The sponser of this petition is Sarah Moore. So far, I am the only sponser of this petition, but I hope that perhaps some day soon I can get more people to help me with this. :)

    If Ferrets are legalized in California it will allow the people that already have them to get the vet care they need and would stop the dumping of unwanted pets because we could form legal rescues.

    I've always wanted a ferret, but it's not allowed in California for moronic reasons. Obviously if other states have ferrets allowed it can't be that dangerous to own a fun, cuddly and loving creature. They let us have chînchillas when those are "exotic" as well. Why sell ferret food in stores in California if you cannot have them. Seriously <\3

    I have always planned to move to California once I'm done with school, but this contradicts with my age-old wish to own a ferret.
