Animal world-Ferret's visit to Hotel

Staff at a Grade I listed Georgian town house hotel in the centre of York welcomed an unusual guest in from the pouring rain - a drenched ferret. The ferret scuttled into the Judges' Lodgings Hotel when the door opened one wet night, reports the Yorkshire Evening Press.

Staff named the ferret Pierre, because they thought he looked French, and they have ' put him up' in a cardboard box in the wine cellar. They say he seems tame - despite nipping a number of workers - and are hoping the ferret's owner comes forward to take him home.

Duty manager Catherine Bell said, 'We' d opened the door to let someone come in, and the ferret scuttled in with them.' He was soaking wet, so I think he' d been outside for at least a couple of hours.'

Assistant manager Julie Smith continued, 'The night porter caught him and put him in the wine cellar, in a crisp box.' We did some research on the internet, and found that ferrets like kitten food. So, We've gone out to buy some. He has bitten some people, but so far he's left me alone.'
