I can not believe anyone would believe skunks are ugly. They are very
cute and show a lot of expression. I hope this man's wife watched the
show on PBS and learned a little something and I hope he really
reconsiders bringing a skunk into an illegal state. I live in California
and I can't have a skunk. I wouldn't think of putting the animal through
that type of possible abuse of the authorities. So I get to enjoy my
little babies when they come around and that has to suffice for me till
I can get out of this state.

I guess I could see where some people may find skunks ugly. But, thats
before they get an up-close look at one. We have had our skunk for a
year and a half and love it. Our skunk may be seen by more people in the
United States than any other skunk. She is seen by thousands every
weekend and actually performs at rodeo's. She gets email from fans and
travels with me. Ofcourse I dont let many people get a close up look but
everyone always says that they never knew how cute skunks were.
