Endangered By: Cecilia Manley

The Black-Footed Ferret's Habitat

It lives in the grassland. It is a dry land mass with grass and small lakes. The grasslands are sometimes called savannas. The black-footed ferret lives there as well as zebras, antelope, bison, lions, cheetahs, and prarie dogs.

They are endangered because...

Hawks eat black-footed ferrets. Black-footed ferrets eat prarie dogs, ground squirrels, small rodents, birds, and rabbits. Prarie dogs are being poisend because their holes trip horses and cattle and make them break their bones. Humans are also killing them because they are the rarest mammal in North America.
