Some Ferret Achievements

World War II

During that war, B-26 Marauders and B-29 Super-fortresses were built at Offutt Air Force Base, Nebraska.

The base had a ferret farm and used the ferrets to run through the structure of the plane with wires attached, making easy work of wiring the planes.

I wonder if they were rewarded with a medal and a pension at the end of their work.

Y2K Center at the U.S. Space Command

In May 1999 the commands new year 2000 missile warning center at Peterson Air Force Base needed to connect computers so additional wires had to be run through 40’ long narrow pipes.

Lt. Col. Randy Blaisdell,who supervised the building of the Y2K center, remembered that ferrets were used at Offutt Air Force Base during WII, so he brought in his pet ferret, Misty, to help out.

He tied a piece of yarn around Misty’s waist and she crawled through the conduit, towing the yarn behind her. Then the loose end was tied around the wires and they were pulled through the conduit.

A difficult, fiddly task which would have taken a person weeks to complete was finished within an hour and Misty was rewarded with her favorite treat, a strawberry pop-tart.

Ferret Therapy for Sick Kids

In 2002 the BBC reported a story called “Ferret Therapy for Ill Children”,and described how Dr June McNicholas had been taking her two ferrets to visit kids in hospitals and schools in the West Midland area in England.

So, to all those nay sayers out there, who say ferrets are dangerous and vicious, this should prove that they are not and are helping with the healing process!
