It’s baby skunk season! I didn’t know that it was baby skunk season, of course, but when driving in Eastern Travis County yesterday for a story, I came upon a family of baby skunks crossing the road. As I was pulling up, their mom was scurrying off into the woods on the other side of the road, and the five or six babies were still on the road.
Several cars ended up stopping to wait as the skunks crossed the road. They were extremely curious about the cars and the drivers who got out to try to shoo them across the road.
They made the cutest little noises and, though their tails were raised, they didn’t spray.
I think we can all agree that these guys are much cuter than the snake-puking-another-snake video that went viral earlier this week.
Here are some other cute baby animal videos to keep you busy this lunch hour.
