baby skunk

  1. I didn't think that a baby skunk could or would spray at that age ,
    well........... I was mistaken.

    When trying to get it out of the yard before one of the neighbours dogs or my cat saw it .
    It left behind a nice stink bomb.

    Lucky for me I did get it, hahahahahahaha
    wife said I almost spent the night outside, lol

    I guess that,s the way nature protects itself,just like a baby rattle snake is born with venom in it!

  3. So how young was this baby skunk? They are armed at birth but it is mostly just a gas until 6-7 weeks of age.

    I know someone who has a five week old armed skunk as a pet, litter box trained an all.
  4. My Uncles sister had one back in the 80's. Said it de-sented. Now I don't know what that involves, if it can come back, or they got ripped off by whoever did it. But when that little bugger let lose in there kitchen they got to spend some time in a hotel until it could be cleaned up. I wounder if that is covered on home owners insurance?
