What is the main reason black-footed ferrets are so endangered?

    Its main food source, the prarie dog, has been hunted and poisoned heavily.  One black footed ferret needs 100-148 acres of a prarie dog colony to have enough food to eat.  In addition to this, many of the grassland habitat that the ferret inhabits has been changed to farmland.  Also, the habitats that do exist are very fragmented making reproduction a tough task.
