I'd buy a wild skunk if the"breeder" had the right paperwork,I suppose. It seems like breeding wild with domestic could only improve or add variety to the bloodlines. Kinda like people who breed European polecats with ferrets.

It's far too late in the season to get a kit.

Be VERY, VERY cautious about 'breeders'.  Most are inexperienced, many have 
been known to denrob wild kits and sell as domestic.....often NOT EVEN 
DESCENTED, if you can believe that!  It happened right here at a Flea Market not 
far from me!!  Some have even attempted to crossbreed wild with the detriment of all.

Judy Slade,  skunkrescue at,  is an excellent Florida contact for 
skunks needing adoption!!
