I am writting an article about skunks as pets and am having dificulty finding historical references.  I would like to know if anyone has seen a reference to the colonial settlers having pet skunks.  I have found several places where it is mentioned they adopted this from the local Indians however these articles don't name a source of this information.  
Has anyone come across a source for this?
Thank you for any help you can give me.
