Dear Anne,

This ferret was run over by a worker and left to die.

Imagine giving birth, only to watch your newborns fall through the gaps in a wire cage bottom onto a filthy concrete floor below. There's no one there to pick up your young as they writhe and cry out, and you can't escape from the cage that imprisons you. You watch as your newborns suffer and eventually die of dehydration or starvation right before your eyes because there was no one who would help. This may sound like a scene from a horror movie, but it's just a glimpse into the cruelty that PETA documented during our  investigation inside the ferret-breeding factory farm Triple F Farms, Inc. (Triple F).

PETA's undercover investigation inside the Bradford County, Pa., facility found that ferrets, who were sold to laboratories and the pet trade, were kept in small cages with dangerous wire floors, deprived of any opportunity to burrow or hide, and often deprived of food and water. Our investigative video shows scenes of baby ferrets who fell from cages and were left for dead by workers who were told to leave them there and other ferrets who were maimed and killed when workers ran them over with carts instead of picking them up and caring for them. PETA's investigator also saw ferrets who were thrown into the trash—and into the facility's incinerator—while still alive. 

Our undercover investigator also discovered that Triple F left ferrets with painful conditions to suffer and die without veterinary care. It didn't matter if the ferrets were newborns, young, or old―it was routine for Triple F to deny them basic veterinary care. Read more about the findings from this investigation and watch our undercover video here.

PETA has shared evidence with Dr. Thomas Frieden, the director of the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC). Since 2006, the CDC has signed contracts with Triple F worth more than $1.5 million for live ferrets used in experiments.

The ferrets who suffered from horrific cruelty at Triple F need your voice today.

Please take a few minutes of your time to ask CDC director Frieden to investigate Triple F and politely urge him to determine whether the agency wishes to continue to funnel taxpayer dollars into this facility.

Thank you.
