Wild skunks?  BY ALL MEANS!!  Domestic skunks?  No way, they have changed far 
too much in 200 years of domestication.  

BTW...descenting, when done at the proper time between 3 and 4 weeks of age, 
is a non-surgical procedure that is quite quick, painless and bloodless.

Endangering the life of an animal to pander to human wishes is the ultimate 
cruelty.  Death is too high a price for the skunk to pay!!
