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.

Hi Ray!  I'm glad they were able to get the yogurt cup off of it's head.  He wouldn't have lasted very long.

Hi - glad they were able to get the yogurt cup off his head, because he would not have lasted very long. You are right about the garbage and how it impacts wildlife.
