Wiggling Package Gives Away Attempt to Mail Ferret

April 22, 2010

Workers at the Lynchburg post office knew something wasn't right when a package marked for overnight delivery to Puerto Rico started wiggling.

They called postal inspector David McKinney at his Roanoke office. McKinney says he took the package and tried unsuccessfully to find the person who attempted to mail it on April.

The next day, McKinney got a search warrant and officers from
the Roanoke Police Department's animal control unit and the Department of Game and Inland Fisheries opened the package.

They found a wire cage, toys, food - and a ferret. The ferret was put up for adoption by the Roanoke Valley SPCA, where he was dubbed Stamps.

Craig Bradley adopted Stamps on Wednesday. Bradley and his wife are co-founders of the Big Lick Ferret Shelter & Hospice.
