Hi everyone. I watched the skunk show the other night and was  wondering whet 
the food was that the lady with all the skunks was feeding them.  If anyone 
knows please share with me. It looked like it was good for them and I  am sure 
my little skunk would love it. Carol~

Sounds to me like you need a hobby or a  life. The majority of skunk owners 
are not interesting in fighting or flaming,  which seems to be what you are 
about. Fighting and getting hot under the  collar just because someone wants to 
disagree for fun is pointless and keeps  skunks owners from their real goal of 
wanting to promote a positive picture of  skunks and owners. Long ago we have 
decided to agree to disagree. 

The  real goal here should be acceptance of differences and viewpoints and to 
stop  wasting energy on mind games.

Your initials sound awfully  familiar.......

I doubt that there is much change in skunks bred as pets  from wild 
skunks. The certainly look the same. Perhaps, temperament? And  breeding 
skunks results in a lack of genetic diversity. Clearly something  that is 
not good for skunks. Does that make breeding them wrong?

In  the UK it is now illegal to descent skunks. It's considered a form of  
mutilation.

Everyone has a point of view that they defend. And  everyone seems quite 
intolerant of others if there is any degree of  emotional involvement.

Someone wanting a pet skunk in a state that  doesn't allow it seems 
better to me than someone selling the fur

I'd worried about the domestic breeding  population too. If it's too closed, 
you get inbreeding, and that damages the  quality, and quality of life of the 
kits. It's supposedly wrong to bring in  any from the wild, but my first boy 
Mycroft was a treasure. I just wish I'd  understood him better.

The two I have now are domestic, from Ruby's,  and are descented and 
neutered. I know of Britain not wanting skunks  descented, and there was even a story 
of people capturing a stray pet, and  being sprayed. I'm too tired to look up 
the story now.

I've  probably received a minimum of forty emails this week on every possible 
 opinion anyone might have regarding skunks. How do I get off of this list?

Samurai Pizza Skunks.

They get  treated so badly, don't  they?
