Ferret1THE RSPCA is appealing for information after a ferret was found in North Wales.

The ferret was found by a member of the public on Monday (8 September) at Peris Avenue, Towyn, Abergele, who kindly took it to a vet as she was covered in ticks.

RSPCA animal collection officer Gavin William said they are hoping to find her owner.

“The member of the public found the ferret in a hedge covered in 100 ticks,” he said.

“She is a lovely ferret. We have put a couple of posters up to try and find the owner. Due to the warm weather there are a lot of ticks about and she has just been covered in them.

“We are appealing for information as we don’t know where this ferret came from and who it belongs to. We do advise for ferret owners to get their pets microchipped as without it we have no way of reuniting missing pets and their owners.” Ferret2
