  1. Props to this woman, I have nothing but respect for her selfless attitude and devotion to these animals. God bless her

  2. I'd love to have a pet skunk, but they're illegal to own as pets here in NY. Plus all my landlords told me the same thing when I asked them if I could get one, "Absolutely not!"

  3. Best of luck with your rescue program! I am amazed to learn skunks are kept as pets. I love their personality. Thanks for sharing…. After seeing this video I would rescue a baby skunk for sure…

  4. omg..They are super cute. They only spray when they are scared right? I'm curious. Are the ones you get as a pet wont spray?

  5. ppl gotta stop acting like a skunk is so much different than a damn ferret and from what i hear ferrets can be very nasty temper wise too so i say ifits ok to keep rats and ferrets y not raccoons and skunks….but no possums ewww

  6. I have pet skunks, because I am allergic to cat, dogs, and birds, while reptiles and fish now bore me. I don't have a large number, but we cope, and when they feel like it, they will come to bed with me.

  7. If l lived in a skunk vacinity I would get one definitely cause they are similar to cats and a bit like dogs but a cute manageable size. Their fur looks amazing texture and get it deskunked incase it sprays as I heard the smell lingers for months
