The Edgewood Pet Center in Ashtabula Township, OH. sure is thankful for their employee of the month, James Strailey, who stopped a young couple from stealing a ferret from their store.

Strailey said he noticed the couple acting strange and when he realized they were stealing a ferret, he knew he had to do something. Strailey ran out of the pet store and stood in front of the couples car until they gave the $170 ferret back. Who knew ferrets costs that much??

Store owner, Doris Lynch said, “He’s a really good employee anyway, but I give him a big gold star for that.”
