USFWS targets Petrified Forest NP as release site for black-footed ferrets

Petrified Forest National Park in central Arizona is being considered by the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service as a release point for endangered black-footed ferrets.

The national park is one of four locations in Arizona where the agency is proposing to release the rare mammals once their prey, prairie dogs, have increased in number in those areas.
