Thank you for your email. I have discussed this matter with a few of us 'city girl'  type legislators who have received your request and we are having  a bill drafted. 
Before we file the bill however, I would be curious to know the history of why having a skunk as a pet was ever removed? Any historical perspective you can provide would be appreciated.

Please add to this ammendmet a motion to strike the following  underlined sentance in the illinois wildlife code
(520 ILCS 5/3.25) (from Ch. 61, par. 3.25) which currently reads:  
No fur‑bearing mammal breeder permits will be issued to hold, possess, or engage in the breeding and raising of striped skunks acquired after July 1, 1975, or coyotes acquired after July 1, 1978, except for coyotes that are held or possessed by a person who holds a hound running area permit under Section 3.26 of this Act. 
Please help relegalize domestic skunks as pets.
Thank You,
