Ferrets came to North America from Europe about 300 years ago. They were used to control rodents on the colonists ships. There are no longer any wild ferrets as they have been domesticated over thousands of generations. They are carnivorous and similar to dogs and cats. They no longer have a natural habibtat and must be aided by humans.
