Appeal after thieves steal two ferrets from Quex falconry centre

Two albino working ferrets, similar to the one pictured above, are missing

The head falconer at Quex in Birchington is appealing for help after crooks reportedly broke into the falconry centre and stole two ferrets last night (January 7).

The thieves are thought to have got into the site sometime between 5pm last night and 9am this morning.

Head falconer Pete Hurst said: “They stole two hob (male) albino ferrets. These are working ferrets and very approachable animals but with a full killer instinct. Damage was also done in gaining access to the site.”

Pete says a red van was parked in Brunswick Road at around 9.20pm yesterday. Two men around 5 11″ were seen leaving the site with a grey box. One man  was wearing light camo trousers, a dark top and a woolly hat.

Anyone with information is asked to  call Pete on 07975880355 or  Kent Police.

A Kent Police spokesman said: “Kent Police received a report of a theft of two male albino ferrets from commercial premises in Quex Park, Birchington between 9.10pm and 9.30pm on Sunday 7 January 2018.

“Anyone with information is asked to call Kent Police on 01843 222289 quoting ZY/1452/18.”

  1. I don’t know what thieves would want with ferrets? It won’t bring them a lot of money. Perhaps I’m missing something.
