I had the video on mute and I scrolled to the bottom to read the comments on youtube. It seems they have mixed emotions. I feel that if the ferret can survive without LIVE rats why feed it the rat? I mean even it it were a frozen feeder rat it would have been less cruel. Monsters! It seems like a bunch of nitwits getting a kick out of it and doing it more for shock value than anything else.

My point is ferrets do NOT need meat and even if they did why the heck feed them alive animals that is just SICK!
And another feeling i have is people who do live feed is would they throw a cat or a dog in with another animal and watch it be killed ? NO
Then why is a rat/mouse different?
I was crying when i heard the rat scream for its life.
I didnt watch it all i turned it off as soon as i heard the rat scream.

I flaged it.

Ferrets actually do need meat just not the way it was shown.They are fine eating the dry food you give them, but filming a live rat being killed in a cruel way just for kicks is wrong.Ferret do and will go after other animals because they are predators and thats way they are used in hunting,but otherwise in a home environment dry food is better, or if you must feed really meat use pre-killed like some chicken or something.

I hope the video get removed are at least views must be a certain age to view.

Alright folks, thought I would come in and clear up some of this beings I am a raw/whole prey feeder. Ferrets are strict carnivores and do in fact need to eat meat instead of the kibble most people give them and if you must feed them kibble it should be high quality kibble that is grain free and all natural. Now for your rat folks out there, I love rats just as much as the next person and no none of us whole prey feeders support feeding live adult rats as it is dangerous for the ferret and inhumane for the rat because it takes more time to kill. We feed rat pinkies, mouse pinkies, mouse hoppers, and adult mice, some people feed day old chicks and pinkie rabbits live but I only feed those frozen thawed.

My ferrets also get meats that range from chicken to venison to cow to pig...they eat good cuts of meat just like any of us meat eaters would. It is better for them then any kibble you could give them, if you would like I can post up some resources and link you to our holistic forum for all natural ferrets.

I'm not defending what was done, in fact I explained it is frowned upon. I flagged the video and hopefully it will be taken down but to say that kibble is the healthiest or only thing a ferret needs is in fact wrong.

Life's not about how to survive the storm, It's about learning how to dance in the rain.

angel_baby,
Yes i know ferrets need meat but as CC says it can be kibble.
I do not have a problem with PRE killed food as i EAT other animals as i am not veg.
But for someone to sit and throw a live animal in with another animal and FILM! it that is ****ing sick in the head!
I hope who ever posted that video they are ashamed of what they have done!
No-one is aloud to film a human getting murdered so why are they allowed to film an animal getting murdered?

Ps. in my last post i meant do NOT NEED LIVE MEAT

Live whole prey is given to stimulate the ferrets natural instinct, it actually tends to help some ferrets transition from Kibble to raw. I used to have a problem with it to but you watch animal planet don't you? (If you don't sorry most pet people do) It's nature and it's going to happen regardless. A lot of us on the natural ferret forums tape our ferrets kills for educational purposes, most with mice and yes many on youtube.

The sickest cruelty thing I've seen on youtube, was some soldiers, who "fed" a live mouse, to a camel spider.
It was SO nasty. They don't eaven hunt mice normally. And the men just stood there, laughing :S

Kinda weird that they remove adult things, when they let these things stay on.

i flagged it. i can understand the need for an animal to need to eat live pray. my friend has a snake that wont eat the frozen thawed mice or rats, only the live ones. and i can even understand taping it for educational purposes for other people with animals that eat live pray, but it should be titled as such, or have an age restriction or something. i dont want my soon-to-be 10 year old step son watching videos like that. i suppose i can understand both sides, but i feel it should be more moderated, and titled "for educational use" or something if that is in fact what it is. if not, it should be removed.
