Dear Rach;
Have you ever considered an African zorilla(Ictonyx striatus)?
It is a dead ringer for our American skunks, and is native to Africa-FAR
away from Kansas!

skunk for about 15 years now, after I saw a lady come to my elementary
school and teach us about different animals.  One of those that she brought
with her was a skunk.  Ever since then I've been hooked.  The problem is
that I live in Kansas.  Years ago I contacted Parks and WIldlife and they
told me that it was illegal to own any animal in Kansas that is native to
Kansas.  I know there is always some way around pet laws.  I was wondering
if anyone had any suggestions on where to start.  

To the best of my knowledge, only black and white skunks can be found in the
wild here, so could I maybe get away with other colors? 

Last year I found something that I thought would work by applying for a game
breeder license, USDA license, and a furharveting license (of course I
wouldn't actually take their pelts) but the Wildlife department never got
back to me.  Has anyone tried working around the law like this?

Or is there some kind of educator's permit or exhibit permit that would
legally grant me possession of a skunk?

I think it's pretty stupid that you are allowed to own tigers and monkeys
but you can't own a skunk.  

Thanks in advance,
Rachelle

It strongly favors our Spotted Skunk, that's for sure, but is nothing like
the Striped Skunk which is in domestication. 

Websearchs for African Zorilla...and...Spotted Skunk...and...
Striped Skunk is thoroughly enjoyable and informative.  : )

# 1. You can domesticate ANY mammal if you acquire it early enough, and only
breed gentle parents; and voila, in a few generations(or years), you have
your so-called domesticated pet. It's been demonstrated on fox fur
ranches-such as with a few unwanted colour changes(black&white),along with
curled tails, and floppy ears, which made them useless to the fur industry.
The same thing is happening to the minks& skunks; CRAZY COLOURS-
Domestication is a double-edged sword...

# 2. YOU don't know EVERYTHING!! I have looked high& low for ANY reference
to spotted skunks in Indiana, and for the life of me I can't find ANY
reference to them ever being there, let alone on some "Threatened-Endangered
Species-List!

ROFL........I don't believe anyone said that I did.  
I didn't mention Indiana...nor either list that you reference.

Enjoy your day!  : D
