My husband has a scar on his face and hand where was been bitten by his father's polecat  :ohmy:

He was very hands on when I found the ferret in my garden but fortunately for him she was quite used to being handled  :)

Oh yes they can deliver a nasty bite when they want had one bite me last year when i was judging a show put 17 holes in my thumb and finger had to pour water over it,s head to get it to release .. But must say have never been bitten by any that i have owned and bred over the years they just need a lot of handling when there younger to realise your not a threat .So even though your husband was bitten it has not put him off holding them .

Ferrets are beautiful and intelligent, but they are a bit smelly too - I called in to see some friends last summer on my way out for dinner.  Their ferrets had had a recent 'happy event' and the owner asked if I would like to cuddle one of the babies - before I could say anything I found I was holding THREE ferret kits...they were gorgeous, but I then had to go on to my dinner engagement stinking of ferret  :unsure:  Fortunately, we were eating outdoors, but even then I noticed people were giving me a wide berth  :lol:
