- I do. Scientific American got some information about ferrets completely wrong. Several of us from the ferret community commented and pointed out their mistake. No correction was made.Jun 12, 2015
- Thanks for the information, Jasmine. I'm surprised no correction was made, or at least an update made acknowledging the controversy and explaining why the article is correct. That's disappointing.
I suppose it all comes down to time and work ethic. I discovered long ago that even the best pedigree, whether it be a top school, publication, or organization, is no guarantee of competence, let alone integrity and a drive to produce high quality work (and correct any mistakes).
If I ever need ferret information, I know who to contact ... :-)Jun 12, 2015

- You are most welcome. Yep, it was disappointing.
Agreed. It was a blog post and would have taken no time to correct their mistake or at least respond to us. I haven't read their blog since then. Now, I am considering giving up IFL Science. Not because they got something wrong but because they won't own up to it.
Lol! I do know a bit about ferrets. I used to have 5 of them. And if I don't know something I know of plenty of reputable ferret sites to get the information.Jun 12, 2015
