New Legalize Ferrets Tote Bags
Ferrets Anonymous was formed in 1993. At the time we were looking for a legislative sponsor, someone in the California legislature who would introduce a bill to legalize ferrets in California.
We were turned away from several legislators, sometimes politely and sometimes not.
At the time State Senator Lucy Killea was working with the San Diego Libertarian Party to return an illegally enacted sales tax. Since she seemed such a fair person we asked her to introduce the ferret legalization bill.
She told us that not enough people were interested in the subject. So we put together a ferret legalization rally outside her office. About 55 people showed up complete with media. We made the news! Note cards were passed out, names and address collected and our mailing list began. A meeting was called at the North Park Recreation Center. Down the hall was a meeting of Narcotics Anonymous. While we were trying to figure out what to call our organization confused people kept interrupting us and asking “is this Narcotics Anonymous?” Finally Nancy E answered “No – This is Ferrets Anonymous!”
And thus we were born!
To say ferret lovers don't get any respect from the California Fish and Game Commission would be an understatement. See how we are treated at multiple attempts in front of the Commissioners. We have decided not to re approach the Commission until at least one of the members is replaced.
