Tricksters in Argentina are passing off ‘roided-up ferrets as dogs

Roided Ferret

2 days ago

And now for a twist on the classic Chihuahua/rat urban legend … Vendors at the largest flea market in La Salada, Argentina, are apparently subjecting ferrets to steroids (and strange grooming regimens) to make them resemble pedigree toy poodles, then selling them to unsuspecting tourists. Multiple sources have confirmed being taken by this scam, which is simply mind-boggling — take one look at the malicious rodent glimmer in that thing’s eyes and tell us you’d mistake it for a poodle. The two people who have come forward have not filed complaints, because sadly, most black markets are sorely lacking in customer service desks. [Source]
