Hi all, here is a picture of my Ferret, Frank. He escaped this morning and killed my daughter's rabbit as wewe can see. Have any of wewe had any similar experiences with ferrets attacking other animals? Poor Hayley is heartbroken.
~ Aggressive behavior ~ Ferrets are known to be aggressive and for biting a lot. It's recommended to keep the ferrets away from children and small wanyama until the ferrets have been trained how to behave around them. The ferret, chororo-kaya can onyesha aggressive behavior out of fear, stress au they simply were born aggressive. However, if Frank had been born aggressive, he would've shown aggressive behavior towards everyone, not just the rabbit.
~ Hunting ~ Ferrets from a special kind of breed aren't aggressive at all, but are natural hunters. It's in their blood to hunt. Why I'm mentioning this? Because ferrets are commonly used for RABBIT HUNTING. wewe can read about this here under the "Ferreting" section; https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Rabbiting
Ferrets naturally despise rabbits. It's recommended to keep these two wanyama as far away from each other as possible since they naturally can't get along. Another thing to keep in mind is that rabbits are extremely sensitive. Rabbits can get a heartattack just from being close to a ferret. The ferret, chororo-kaya doesn't have to attack au onyesha aggressive behavior to scare them.
A person doesn't need to have personal experience to know about this. The ferrets' aggressive behavior and use for rabbit hunting are basic facts about ferrets that all ferret, chororo-kaya owners must be aware of before buying a ferret. Didn't wewe check ferrets up before getting one?
