- "Professor Moody was limping down the marble staircase. His wand was out and it was pointing right at a pure white ferret, which was shivering on the stone-flagged floor, exactly where Malfoy had been standing."
- —Draco Malfoy having been transformed into a ferret by Bartemius Crouch Junior (disguised as Alastor Moody)[src]
Barty Crouch Jr (disguised as Mad-Eye Moody) used this spell on Draco Malfoy in the 1994 when he tried to curse Harry Potter behind his back at the Marble Staircase, in front of many students. Minerva McGonagall later performed the appropriate untransfiguration, and scolded him for using transfiguration as punishment.
During the Calamity in the 2010s which affected the Wizarding World, a curse Confoundable transfigured an unnamed Slytherin student into a ferret. Volunteer members of the Statute of Secrecy Task Force had to cast the General Counter-Spell to return the student to their original form and send them back to Hogwarts.
Behind the scenes
- In September 1994, when Draco Malfoy was transfigured into a ferret, he tried to get to the dungeons. Complete transfiguration into an animal makes a human think like the animal, except Animagus transfigurations. This suggests that the attempted escape had nothing to do with him wanting to get to his common room and was coincidental.
