They're illegal in New York City as well, I believe. And the mayor is
apparently convinced that ferret-fanciers are strange, deluded people
who need live rather than pets. Which might well put a dent in his
re-election prospects as I believe there are many illegal ferrets in
NYC as well.

(Personally, ferrets terrify me, but only because they are so far
ahead of the cats in the 'we need opposable thumbs now' race.)
