Polecat & polecat ferrets


In 2011 Bramley Associates staff and others recovered a number of polecat/ferrets from a few areas of Kent and it appears animals are breeding in two locations in the County.

One established population is situated in west Kent and another in east Kent just north of Maidstone. One feral animal trapped in Blean Woods near Canterbury had virtually indistinguishable markings from a native polecat.

Native polecats went extinct in Kent just over 100 years ago but it seems as though they are coming back partially on their own steam but with help from other quarters.
