Investigation Underway After Ferret Was Shipped In A Cardboard Box

DENVER (CBS4) – Denver Police are investigating a case of animal cruelty after a ferret was mailed through the U.S. Postal Service last week.

Pacheco has worked for Denver Animal Protection for 19 years. She thought she had heard everything until that phone call.

“The animal apparently didn’t like it’s traveling arrangements and chewed its way out and got out at the general mail facility,” she said.

Investigators say the package came from Fort Morgan, and they know who sent it. Denver Police investigators are looking into the circumstances and whether or not charges will be filed.

“She’s going to be living with us until the investigation is over,” said Pacheco.

She says the box was a typical brown package. She says it had some depth and was about a foot long.
