Find a Ferret Thief, Win a Reward

Somebody stole a baby ferret from a Fall River pet store on Saturday, and the shop wants the little fella back.

Animal Instincts Aquarium and Pet Center has offered a reward for anyone who can help locate the ferret and get the suspected thief arrested. The store released security video of a man they believe snatched the baby weasel. If you watch the video below, you can see the baby ferret when the camera changes angles:

Store owner Robert Schenck told the Fall River Herald News the man cut the bottom from the ferret’s cage and then stuffed the poor little guy in a backpack.

“We got him on four different cameras. We got more cameras in the store now that you can shake a stick at,’’ Schenck said to the Herald News.
