I emailed you from Arizona. I am not sure of the law back in 1986. I just got Rosebud without even realizing there might have been a problem. I think at the time because she was brown not black I did not have a problem. I know black skunks were not allowed. When I talked to game and fish here in Maricopa county he said I could get one and take my chances but it would break my heart to have a pet taken away so I haven't checked any further. As I said she was wonderful. We had her spayed, kept her nails SHORT so she couldn't dig and she was wonderful. I don't know who to contact here but I will do some checking.
I kept her inside and only took her out with a leash as she was trained to that.

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 furbearing 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.
