A Ferret Movie for Legalizing Ferret Ownership in California
Ferrets are furry, cute pets, but the state of California is one of the few places in the United States that outlaws them as pets. Canadian filmmaker and ferret owner Alison Parker is using the power of movies to present the case for ferrets.
Parker’s first foray into ferret films was Jake And Jasper: A Ferret Tale. Released in 2011, this short film tells the story of a boy being helped by a ferret to overcome an emotionally difficult time.
In 2012, Parker began fundraising in the hope of creating a full-length feature titled The Ferret Squad. This movie focuses on ferrets being illegal to own in California, and what happens when a boy who owns one moves there and meets up with a group of children who call themselves The Ferret Squad.
