  1. Oy. Do baby skunks have the smelly function active? Are these things live? (Live, like a grenade live?)

  2. @2: if you remove an animal’s defensive tools (e.g. skunks’ glands, cats’ claws), you as an owner must guarantee that animal’s safety for as long as it lives. It must never, ever be allowed to be in a situation where it needs to defend itself but is unable to do so.

  3. @5 Tell me about it. My pet porcupine, Poetpine, needs 24/7 protection, not to mention DAILY quill suppression therapy. And he looks like a little saggy weasel, so there’s that, too.

  4. #1-4 if you read the information the owners give about the skunks, they will be released into the wild so I doubt they have removed the glands (at least I hope not). You can get this done if you want to keep a skunk as a pet though. Why you would want to keep a skunk as a pet when there are so many homeless domestic animals, I’m not sure, but it can be done.

  5. I’m sure they have active smelly bits as children — think of the spraying among siblings and the whining and the tomato juice baths. They’d be grounded all the time.
