In absurd animal news, a retired man in Argentina has discovered that his toy poodle pets are actually two large ferrets pumped with steroids.
The man paid just NZD$90 for the two ferrets, when the going rate for two toy poodle pups in Argentina would have been closer to NZD$1,200.
He only found out that the beady-eyed ‘puppies’ were in fact large ferrets pumped with steroids when he took them to his local vet.
This isn’t the first time a person has been duped by drugged-up ferrets in Argentina either; a woman says she suffered from the same scam when buying a Chihuahua at the same market.
