I was just curious because ferrets are like the nicest and cutest animals ever why would they be illegal. They are also illegal in new york city and im about 10 miles east from there.

Mainly misinformation. They still think ferrets are vicious and evil and will tare up everything if they accidently got loose

One of the main reasons is that ferrets are seen as carriers of diseases, such as rabies, distemper, etc.  Most of the places were ferrets were once illegal but are now legal, have laws saying that ferrets are legal but they MUST be vaccinated.

Its really stupid if you think about it,my county requires a license just like a dog thats 6 dollars every one they have-money for the county is lost because we are still going to hasve them they just wont get the license money-there are thousands of ferrets estimated in california.

I'm not sure but I think it is because NY city Cali. and Hawaii may realize the ferrets evil plan to take over the world (or at least drag it off to their hidey hole)
Ferrets are addicting, but Ferrents are nicer than crackheads

i also heard one of the reasons is b/c they are afraid that ppl are going to let them loose so they can populate and become feral, so they can get into groups so they destroy the city and vegitation. omg ill be scared to see a wild ferret colony in my backyard planning to drag my dog off to their hidey hole and corrupt him so they can use him as bait. lol.

This is the most accurate.  They are afraid of people letting them loose and then feral ferret colonies taking over.  The feral ferrets will then kill off natural wildlife.

Hasn't anyone ever pointed out the fact that ferrets don't usually survive without their people for very long?

When they escape, I've heard they make it about three days on average unless someone finds them.  Not to mention that they don't know how to find food and tend to eat things that will kill them.  o.O

And anyway, most ferrets who aren't from breeders are already 'fixed' before you get them.  It's hard to start a wild colony when you lack the equipment to have babies.  XD

At this point, I just keep sitting here going "Are they -really- that stupid?"

The short answer is Yes. Yes they are.
