Skunks, Coons and Foxes-Would a fur farm, raising skunks, coons and foxes, pay well in Quebec? What should I feed the animals? Could I import opossums from the U.S. and would they thrive here?
Whether it would pay or not would depend mostly on the way it would be managed. There is much that might be said on this subject and there is much to learn. Fox and skunk farming has already been developed into a profitable business and the experiments prove that many other animals can be reared successfully. I can see no reason why the raising of foxes and skunks would not pay in your province, providing that it were handled in an intelligent manner. We can give no better advice than that you read Fur Farming, and it will also tell what to feed. You could have opossums shipped to you all right but you are too far north for opossums.
