I would not catch any wild skunk! They can carry rabbies and they do....have seen a lot of this in Massachusettes. There is no way to tell whether a wild animal has rabbies until it gets sick and dies from it and then they examine the brain. Besides, babies are quite capable of spraying as any adult! lol So, you wouldn't catch me doing it! lol I'll bet there are breeders out there with baby skunks available? Don't really know, I did have a friend who had a pet skunk though. They were still a bit smelly even thought they were descented. He was aggressive too.....he used to chase me right out of the room! lol They can have a pretty nasty bite too! Another reason to raise a captive breed one from an infant. Have you thought of a hedgehog? I've heard squirrils are pretty cute...
