Stop the Habitat Poisoning of America’s Most Endangered Mammal–the Black-Footed Ferret.

The U.S. Forest Service is proposing to poison the essential habitat (prairie dogs) for black-footed ferrets on public lands in South Dakota.

If adopted, this habitat poisoning plan could spell disaster for America’s most endangered mammal, the black-footed ferret in the area where ferret recovery efforts have been most successful. About half of the wild ferrets in the world live on 26,000 acres of prairie dog colonies in the Conata Basin on the Buffalo Gap National Grasslands in South Dakota where the prairie dog poisoning campaign is being proposed.
