Baby Skunks

Melissa Crytzer Fry

Irony of all ironies… I did get close enough to a skunk for photos during my trip back to Pennsylvania (see previous post, Scent of Skunk). Five of them, actually: four babies and mama crossing the road! Enjoy this snapshot. They were smaller than they look in the photo (about four-month-old kitten sized).

Baby skunks, separated from their mother, after crossing the road. Jamestown, Pennsylvania.

    Great photo. And it is ironic that you came across them after writing your previous post. The little skunk in Bambi was my favorite character; this photo reminded me of it. I just may have to dig out the kids’ old VHS and watch it tonight.
