Alice the Skunk

Alice is our skunk, she is a classic black and white stripe.

We have had her since she was 11 weeks old, and she has grown up with Springer Spaniels and cats, and as such is very well socialised. We also took her everywhere with us for the first few months of having her, to make sure she was used to being handled by strangers.

She has not been descented, which is now illegal under the Animal Welfare Act, but being as she is so well socialised and friendly, she has never felt the need to spray, which is a last resort defence mechanism. She has never felt threatened enough to do so.

See our articles and care sheet sections for more information on skunk feeding and socialising, or follow @alicetheskunk on twitter or add her to your facebook friends!
