Ferrets Sold As Toy Poodles: Argentina Pet Dealers Reportedly Selling Weasels On Steroids

Apparently Argentinian bazaar salesmen are passing off ferrets on steroids as toy poodles -- and people believe them.

A local news report out of Buenos Aires caught the attention of the Daily Mail and other sites this week, after a man took the "toy poodles" he bought at the La Salada market to a veterinarian, only to find that it was actually a giant weasel.

Selling what Argentinians call a "Brazilian rat" -- a ferret given steroids at birth to increase its size and then groomed -- isn't a rare occurrence, the site reports. But this particular story, aired in June 2012, apparently confirmed the urban legend that these freaky ferrets are sold at the popular market.

The victim paid $150 per poodle, Yahoo! News reports. Another woman told the Buenos Aires station that she was tricked into buying what she thought was a chihuahua -- but that was also a ferret.
