Ferrets are being sold as toy Poodles
Argentinian bazaar businessmen are passing off ferrets as toy poodles and people believe them.
According to a local news report in Buenos Aires, a man took the ‘toy poodles’ he bought at a market to a veterinarian. To the mans surprise, the vet told the man he had a giant weasel.
These ferrets are what Argentinians call a “Brazilian rat”, a ferret that was given steroids at birth to increase its size and groomed to make its coat look more fluffy and presentable.
The victim reportedly paid $150 for the ‘poodle’.
