No, that was ever just the poachers. Easy to hide it from the gamekeepers.
Country is a state of mind, not a state of America.

Lonesome, I think i've found your feret song, only the lyrics. Couldn't find a clip.
Is this the song you were after?

My Grandfather's Ferret
by Derek Jolly ( or so I've been told)

My Grandfather's ferret, was a beast of little merit
What lived out the back in a cage
If you peered thru the bars you'd see eyes like little stars
All a-glimmer with impotent rage
Oh, the smell it gave off made you splutter gasp and cough
And its habits were exceedingly gross
And it bit off anything it could reach
If you stood too close

Now when that ferret needed feeding
Someone always came in bleeding
Or looking just as white as a sheet
If you opened up the doors, it was all out bloody war
And that ferret was dead fast on its feet
It could go for your throat thru two mufflers and a coat
Or it would savage a finger or two
Then it would sit back, with a self-satisfied smirk
Like Wellington, after Waterloo

Now one day my auntie May went to feed the thing some hay
By poking it in thru the wire
But thinking that meat would be more up its street
And with a speed that you had to admire
Clamped his teeth around her digit and went absolutely rigid
Auntie May nearly went out of her mind
Then the daft cow opened up the door
To try and attack it from behind

Now when that ferret saw that she'd opened up the door
It was out and upon her in a flash
With a scream of success it went streaking up her dress
Auntie May wished she'd never been so rash
With his nasty little teeth, he bit her underneath
In between, round behind and at the back
And my aunt May never smiled again.......

And neither did my uncle Jack!

That's the one. Thank-you Moshe, you're a star.

For anyone who cares; the ferret song is sung to the tune of My Grandfather's Clock.

I have a couple of Best of's by Jake Thakray. A bloody funny singer I've enjoyed listenin' to since I was a child. I appreciate the sheer quality of his lyrics an' delivery even more nowadays.

A couple of my favorites....

don't bother watchin' the video
