Annual Celebration of the Black-Footed Ferret

The Meeteetse Museums will  host a celebration of the anniversary of the rediscovery of the black-footed ferret. A number of free events are planned in honor of the date when John and Lucille Hogg’s dog, “Shep,” found a black-footed ferret in 1981. This species of ferret was believed to be extinct and its discovery set off a series of events that have, over the years, resulted in the ongoing recovery of the species. Instrumental in the recovery was a successful captive breeding program led by the US Fish and Wildlife and a number of other entities. Free admission.
