Transcript of The endangered Black-footed ferret

The Endangered Black-Footed Ferret
If Black-footed Footed ferrets go extinct, prarie dogs will over populate and take over the land that Black-footed Ferrets rule. Since prarie dogs are considered pests, that will be bad for everyone.
How can we help?
Farmers can help mainly by putting non-toxic pestesides on their crops, and putting up non-lethal electric fences to keep the prairie dogs out. They can also use up less land to leave some for the Black-footed Ferrets and their prey. Also, we can let people know about this problem.
What is it?
The Black-Footed Ferret is an endangered species, they resemble the common ferret but with black feet, mask and tail tip.
Food/Predators
Black-Footed Ferrets live ONLY in prairie dog burrows to prey on prairie dogs. Their natural predators include coytes, badgers, golden eagles, and great-horned owls.
Why is the black-footed ferret endangered?
Their natural prey ( prairie dogs ) are dying because of poisioning, natural killing, and habitat loss.
They are getting killled mainly by farmers, because prairie dogs destroy wheat, alfalfa, hay, and corn.
Why is the Black-Footed Ferret endangered? ( continued )
Also, prairie dog burrows are accused of damaging farm machinery and injuring cattle.
Why does it matter?
Thank you!!!!
