Our dear friends, your dream of owning a ferret has indeed been crushed. The New York City Board of Health announced this morning, after a scheduled vote, that the New York ferret ban, in practice since 1959, will continue. New York Times reporter Mike Grynbaum broke the news on Twitter, and ferret-lovers everywhere bowed their heads in distress. But of course, if you feel anything like former Mayor Rudy Giuliani on the topic, you're probably jumping for joy.

Don't remember? Just hit play.
