KINGMAN -  Considered one of the most endangered mammals on the planet, a small population of black-footed ferrets seems to be holding its own.

The Arizona Game and Fish Department and volunteers counted 26 individual ferrets over six nights in March and April.

A total of 36 were captured, but 10 of them were previously captured and an additional 38 ferrets were spotted but not captured, according to Jennifer Cordova, supervisor at the reintroduction site in Aubrey Valley west of Seligman.

The number is about the same as last spring's count, when 31 ferrets were documented. Cordova said the spring counts are always less active than in the fall.

In the 2013 count, the minimum population was 95 and most of them were captured in the fall, said Cordova.

This year's fall count will take place on Sept. 11-13 an Oct. 9-11. For information on volunteering, email the reintroduction crew at azferret@azgfd.gov.
