Adopt a Skunk at AIWC

The Striped Skunk is about the size of a domestic cat, has short legs, and a bushy tail. A skunk’s unique feature is how it defends itself, which is through discharging a bad smelling fluid which produces an odour that can be sprayed up to 6m and is strong enough to be carried almost 1km on the wind. It is one of the most useful small mammals that inhabit Canada’s mixed farmlands, grasslands, and forests.

Striped skunks have thick, glossy fur that is black, with a thin white stripe down the centre of the face and a broad white stripe beginning on the back of the head, forking at the shoulders and continuing as a white stripe along each side of the back to the base of the tail. Skunks are usually away from their nests in the late afternoon or evening and through the night. They forage within about 800m of the den, but may venture as far away as 2km in a night.
