Meeting a Family of Skunks

(YouTube link)

Don’t. Move. An. Inch. You don’t want to startle this family! Francois Arsenault was out on his bike in Pointe-Taillon National Park in Quebec when he was approached by a fairly tame mother skunk and her litter. Luckily, he satisfied their curiosity without triggering their defense mechanisms. -via Tastefully Offensive

That is so cute, and sweet of the guy to just let them investigate him. I have heard though that if the ground isn't soft enough (i.e. pavement, etc.) they can't spray.

Every year my parents would have a litter of baby skunks in their yard. They had an acre of land to explore but they preferred to stay near the road. They never got squashed, thank goodness, but they were a joy to watch when they were having a 'play-time'.
