These initial attempts at reintroduction met with limited success, but in the last few decades much has been learned about the successful breeding of ferrets as well as their ecology, and reintroduction efforts are meeting with more success. Kits reach adult weight and become independent several months following birth, from late August to October [,,].
Due to the black-footed ferret's reliance on prairie dogs, fire will most likely affect the 2 species similarly. Current habitat occupied by black-footed ferrets near Meeteetse, Wyoming, is wheatgrass Agropyron spp.
Epizootiology and Transmission Clostridium perfringens is ubiquitous and is present in the intestinal contents of humans and animals.
Although genetic diversity decreased, female fecundity and juvenile survival were not affected by the population bottleneck. All but 18 of those black-footed ferrets died of distemper.
For information about current recovery efforts for the black-footed ferret, see the website for the. Most experimental work has been carried out in the mouse model of disease, however the model may not faithfully mimic human disease because of the unique susceptibility of mice and rats to the murine exotoxin.
An FEIS review on the black-tailed prairie dog suggests that fire may have positive or negative effects, depending on burn severity and season. Prairie dogs are "pretty much all the ferrets eat," Gober says. Determining their food habits by scat analyses can become quite a chore because the ferrets deposit most of their feces in the burrows they occupy.
These kinds of modern studies give us a good idea of how the various mustelids are related and from whence and where they arrived.
All three locations are sites where they have been reintroduced after the original populations were extirpated.
On the basis of our models, we conclude that few North American prairie dog complexes cover sufficient land area to sustain black-footed ferret populations through plague-driven crashes in prey abundance.
