They are all black except for a nice white stripe all the way down their back, a big bushy tail, and a cute little almost kitten-like face. There are two problems with skunks: one little spray and nobody will get near you for the next week. Secondly, if they're out in the daytime, it can mean they have rabies. So, what do you do? Do you go pet them because they are so cute or try to scare them off? Only if you're suicidal! The best thing to do is walk quickly in the other direction and you won't have to bury your clothes!
