There is a difference. A skunk is an intelligent mammal. Wild skunks can be VERY agressive. This is not an animal that will be caged. Ever seen how destructive a wild coon can be? Throw that in your house and leave for the day. Skunks have been captive bred for generations. They still retain alot of their instincts, but they are more along the lines of domesticated. And lets not overlook the legal spect.
I planted some bird seed. A bird came up. Now I don't know what to feed it.
