Ferrets: The Pursuit of Excellence Previous Broadcasts

KQED 9: Wed, Oct 12, 2011 -- 10:00 PM

The program travels to Ohio and the annual Ferret Buckeye Bash -- the home to the largest and most popular ferret show in the country, where hundreds of top breeders, seasoned experts and ferret enthusiasts pamper and parade their pets in a quest for prizes and prestige. Though these mischievous creatures are unlikely show animals, the competition is intense. For top breeders, the Best in Show award is the ultimate validation of their breeding stock though the many ferret fanatics whose "fuzzies" don't win a prize insist that beauty remains in the eye of the beholder.
