Friendly Ferret Rescued From Rangehood in Bondi Apartment

RSPCA NSW Inspectors yesterday rescued a friendly ferret from an overhead exhaust rangehood in a Bondi apartment building.

Inspectors were called to the third floor apartment in Ramsgate Avenue yesterday afternoon following a report from a resident that a possum had become stuck in the roof.

The resident originally called a pest removal company however when they discovered that it was a ferret they ‘refused to go near it’ so she called the RSPCA.

RSPCA NSW Inspector Flett Turner (pictured) was able to free the ferret from her precarious hiding place by removing the main exhaust pipe of the rangehood and gently prising her free.

“She’s just so friendly, so she’s obviously someone’s lost family ferret,” said Turner.

The resident of the apartment was surprised that the noise turned out to be a ferret as no one she is aware of in the apartment complex owns one.

“We really hope that her owners come forward so that they can be reunited with their missing pet,” added Turner.

The ferret was transferred to the RSPCA Sydney Shelter at Yagoona for veterinary examination, where she enjoyed a proper meal and a more comfortable night’s rest. 

The RSPCA is urging the ferret’s owners or anyone with information to contact the Sydney Shelter on 02 9770 7555 or NSW Ferret Welfare on 0451 117 653 (after 5pm).
