At which time they will feast on your corpse.

Skunks are way cooler than your wimpy dogs and cats. Beautiful, self reliant, not afraid to stink up the place. They're sort of my ideal self image.

Fine line between rescue center and skunk-hoarder, a.k.a "'Pepe LePew Complex". Many of the skunks may be illegal French immigrants, here in America looking for love.

50 would be a bit much for me, but boy those critters are cute.

Once they get used to you, you don't have to de-gland them. I'm betting none of hers have been de-glanded.

I'm surprised Pepe LePew hasn't been banned yet for sending the message that it's okay to stalk and sexually harass women.

People have tried; for those exact reasons. They don't show Pepe on tv as often anymore and only a few specific episodes.

But, then there are people who want to ban Road Runner and Wile E. Coyote; because it gives the kiddies the idea that they can survive fatal drops. Yeah, really.

And, I haven't seen a single speedy Gonzales in years. Even though it shows a Mexican mouse outsmarting a American cat. And, Mexicans love speedy; for some damn reason.

I had one cross the street in front of me tonight as I was walking home. It ended up at the base of a block-long wall with no bushes to hide behind as I walked past. I gave it a respectful distance as I went by, but I did think as I did that it was such a pretty little critter.

Then I next pondered how lucky we are that it's the only beastie on the planet that squirts stinky ass juice at us. It would really suck if all animals in the world did the same.

A good PBS Nature episode: "Is That Skunk".

I think that it isn't Speedy that's the problem. It's all of his slow cousins that leads to bans.

Some of those are odd colors. I wonder if they were domestic-bred.

They are all domestic rescues, so I imagine they all have been de-glanded before they were sold to their original owners. These are bred, not caught in the wild.

Yes have noticed that a lot, Just have to have the right name and PR -- what use to be called Puppy mills / Animal Hoarding  are now " Animal Rescues"  places with zero oversight for animal care or well being run by  people selling animals from there at exorbitant rates .

I was told a few stories above this one that: "Pew Research Center study concludes fewer pews are required".
 
2013-10-08 07:52:53 AM
We are overrun with them.  They are spraying dogs, kids, and dawn runners/bikers.  Some are even coming out during the day which is odd as hell in the summer months.  Nobody can keep their windows open at night.

I am the neighborhood skunk killer.  I've gotten quite a few this year.  They've increased in population alongside the stray cats.  We have lots of widowed women that leave out bags of cat food for the poor little kitties so they are breeding out of control.  Seriously, these ladies buy a bag, cut it down the middle and leave it on their porch.

Most of them have a routine and waypoints so you can get within 5 minutes or so of their hunting pattern after seeing them once.  I can't use a .22 but I can use a scoped pellet rifle.  Both are illegal to shoot within the city but nobody hears the pellet rifle.

My grandfather had a pet skunk that would travel with him in the back seat of his taxi. I am not sure how many clients he scared away.

But Deborah Cipriani keeps 50 of the animals in her own home; they are given free reign of the five-bedroom house - even sleeping on Deborah's bed.

Yes this is dog: 50 would be a bit much for me, but boy those critters are cute.


My thoughts exactly. Where do the 50 animals poop every day? And the other two -- do they even have a social life?

Apparently you've never excited or startled a dachshund just prior its regularly scheduled anal gland cleansing or whatever it's called. Vile. So very, very vile.

OK props to her for the rescue center, but 50 of any critter is way to many. How the hell do you even begin to keep up with just general care & maintenance. Hope she has lots of help.

And they do make pretty good pets. My kids have been begging for 1 for years & have done tons of research on them to try & convince their mother.

One of my dad's many hs pranks comes to mind.  He was out in the woods when a skunk blocked his path aggressively, so he shot it.  Right after shooting the skunk, he found the litter and felt bad.  So, he took the litter to my grandparents farm and raised them.  Then he decided he wanted some time off from school so he used the skunks to spray the inside of the school.  He was not caught, but no one wanted to hold class for a week.

/not a CSB, since he tied fireworks to the skunks' tails
