Skunkerton the Abandoned Baby Skunk Is Rescued (Video)

Skunkerton’s rescue parent shares this amazing message:

“This is Skunkerton. She is our sweet lil baby skunk. Her mother and siblings all drowned during a flood, but she survived. She was brought to us weak, scared, hungry and covered in lice. You can see that she is now healthy and happy. Once she is ready she will be turned loose in the wild.

My mother has a permit to save orphaned wild animals. She raises them until they are old enough to survive on their own, then releases them into the wild. She has been doing this for years and we are blessed to experience these amazing animals.
Thanks for watching!”

Could have done without the camel toe but the skunk was really cute, and energetic.

She's real cute.......if and until she doesn't decide to spread her smell around the home.

Kudos to the rescue/rehab gal and her daughter. Skunkerton is cute and playful but I'll stick with cats and dogs.

i dont mean to dampen an adorable video...but isn't treating skunkerton like a pet before releasing her into the wild a little counter productive, shell be far to comfortable with humans which can be dangerous in the wild

skunkerton is adorable tho!! perfectly cute name for a skunk haha

I love all greens, I just need to eat them more often than I do.

I don't have a garden, but thank you.
