I had to look this co. up on Wiki to find out they sell a wide range of food, toys, and other accessories for ferrets and rabbits.. Ferrets from Marshall are commonly seen in pet shops across the United States, Canada, and (increasingly) Japan; they are also used in biomedicine laboratories, particularly in the fields of viral and parasitic diseases, cardiovascular and behavioral research, and reproductive endocrinology.

Pet retail stores sell back to Marshall Farms older kits which are not sold after a certain amount of time; they are then euthanized.[citation needed] Due to this practice, as well as Marshall Farms' expansion into the sale of ferret supplies, accessories, and merchandise, many ferret advocates question the ethical position that this conflict of interest creates.

Animal rights groups such as PETA have attacked Marshall in the past for breeding animals for scientific and medical research. The firm was the subject of an Animal Liberation Front raid in 2001, in which it was claimed that 10 ferrets and 30 beagles were removed from the complex.

Signed the petition.
