Skunk family on patrol in Wisconsin

The Necedah National Wildlife Refuge in Wisconsin is a dedicated nesting area for waterfowl and other migratory birds. It’s also home to endangered Karner blue butterfly and whooping crane. But it’s this recent sighting of a skunk family that has everybody talking.


“The refuge really comes alive at dusk! Here’s a skunk family making its way down the road to the Visitor’s Center,” the park noted.

This is seven seconds of baby skunk heaven. Or, as Maureen Jeffery asked on Facebook, “how can something so cute smell so bad???”


And, finally, as Christy Litkea Johnson aptly pointed out on Facebook, “How Stinkin’ cute is that??”
