do you work them critters FL?

Wish I could but it's illegal here.   I own and breed hybrids with very strong hunting instincts and good to excellent temperaments, so I've always wished I had the opportunity.  Rabbits don't live in warrens in the US so I'm not sure that ferreting with them would be possible even if it were legal.

It’s too stop escapees breeding with black footed ferrets

It's my understanding that ferrets and European polecats are unable to produce viable offspring due to the difference in chromosomes.  Steppe polecats are very similar to black footed ferrets and I think they were used in the effort to bring back black footed ferrets from the edge of extinction.

eu  polcats and ferrets are the same species....and they do interebreed 

Funnily enough I read a report only yesterday where they were testing wild polcat populations here in the uk....they found about 30% ferret blood in wild polcats  close to urban areas.....but more pure populations in more wilderness areas

Yes, I did...sorry for the poor wording.  Ferrets and Eu polecats can interbreed successfully, as can Eu polecats and Steppe polecats.  Eu polecats can also interbreed successfully with European mink but not with American mink.
