    It's a common ignorance that all small mammals must be rodents. About as stupid as people trying to trap skunks with lettuce.

    The reason is simple. It is ignorance. They do not know and rather than do a little research they guess. A lot of people also think lagomorphs, i.e. rabbits, hares, and others, are rodents.

    They think ferrets and mink are too. But they're not.

    Maybe the 'varmint" category is all those people need for animals that aren't 'useful' like farm animals and pets?
