Yes, in our state, Michigan,?the skunk has to come from a Michigan breeder. We have only small breeders. The commercial one was forced out of business about 12-15 years ago. So far this season I have not heard from any small breeders who have babies available.

On my mailing list, Skunkhollow, we have several other Michigan skunk owners who may have additional advice for you. You can find us at yahoogroups.

How do I find a baby in my state (Michigan)? I heard they had to be licensed and 
cannot be transported across borders.

The skunk is the ONLY All American housepet....all others were imported at 
some time in our history.....well, not snakes, lizards, etc.
