With its long, slender body, the black-footed ferret easily searches the burrows and tunnels of its favorite prey, the prairie dog......... VERY INFORMATIVE

Very funny animals and lots of energy. Typical of the mustellidae order.

I really wish the farmers would quit holding prairie dog hunts in SD...they just go out and shoot the prairie dogs and let them lay right there.
