Ferret recovery is tricky. Is it worth it?
State wildlife commissioners have approved the release of up to 20 black-footed ferrets in central Montana to prevent the loss of a struggling population of the highly-endangered prairie animal.
Montana Fish, Wildlife and Parks non-game wildlife management bureau chief, Lauri Hanauska-Brown says this will allow federal biologists to release the animals onto the UL Bend National Wildlife Refuge by the weekend.
In this evening's feature interview, Hanauska-Brown explains to Edward O'Brien why it's proving so tricky to re-establish the Blackfooted Ferret in Montana.
