Removing the "Stinky Sac" from a Skunk...keeping them as a Pet.
August 2, 2012 2:15pm CST
Am I the only one that finds skunks to be cute? Yes I know they stink, but their appearance is cute and it's also cute that they defend themselves by throwing a stink bomb in your face. I have heard of situations where people have the smelly sacs removed from the skunk and keep them as pets. I don't necessarily agree with this because I think they are meant to be wild, but they sure are cute. What do you think?

I personally do not find them that cute. They are supposedly a member of the cat family or vice versa so I've heard, as in close relations of animals but for some reason I don't beleive that. I can't see a lion and and a skunk "related" in any way for instance. I do know they sometimes have the smelly sac of the skunk removed so that it can't stink up the place at all. I'm not sure how that is done but it must be from someone who really knows their skunks, am experienced animal veteranarian.
