Arizona skunk is rescued

There have been several times over the past few years when I have walked into our backyard or out of our Sun City Grand Ken Meade Realty office and smelled the unmistakable aroma of skunk.  I had no idea skunks lived among us but I guess I shouldn't be surprised. 

I came across the following video showing a group of guys who helped to free a skunk from a yogurt container. 

It made me curious about these and other critters that may live closer than we know.  The Arizona desertmuseum.org website provides a wealth of information I thought you might find as interesting as I did.

It continues to amaze me the way creatures (and plants) have adapted to our harsh low desert summers.
