Okay before I start I learned about ferrets from reading the redwall books. It wasn't until a few years later when I was doing research for a school paper that I discovered the truth about ferrets. They're actually really sweet and friendly creatures. They love to play and get along well with other animals. Sure their names mean 'thieving weasel" and they are known to take chicken eggs in the wild but they're not evil creatures. ALSO they're related to otters and I believe badgers too so WHY are ferrets bad guys and otters and badgers aren't? Why did Brian make them evil with only like three exceptions? It bothers me since I LOVE ferrets and they make awesome pets.
