Ferret Ferret: Legging: Longest: 5 hours 26 min. The undisputed world Ferret Legging Champion was 78 year old Reg Mellor (d.1987) of Barnsley, Yorkshire (United Kingdom). Indeed Reg claimed to be the originator of this 'sport' when, as a boy of eight, he used to keep his hunting ferrets warm and dry by stuffing them down his trousers after a day in the fields. On July 5, 1981, at the Annual Pennine Show at Holmfirth, Yorkshire, Reg broke his own world records by keeping two live ferrets down his trousers for a time of 5 hours, 26 minutes. Reg performed the feat in front of over 5,000 people and although badly bitten in 'all the wrong places' he persevered to the bitter end. During record attempts, no undergarments can be worn, and the trouser bottoms must be firmly secured with string. BOAR
