If you'll take a ton of time, and read the archives of the list here at 
rdwarf, there are the heart breaking stories of several skunks being 
seized and killed.  Some were for a bite, some were for less.  In most, if 
not all, cases, the skunks were killed to test for rabies.

There are several of us who suggest strongly that you don't own skunks in 
illegal states because we've seen what happens and it is so very 
unpleasant for everyone involved.  The skunk worst of all.

In Blythe, California, a city ordinance declares that a person must own
at least two cows before he can wear cowboy boots in public.
