A Fallen Baby Skunk

On our walk this morning

Brandy my dog and I saw

such a sad thing, lying on

the sidewalk was a baby skunk

dead as ever.  Brandy wanted to

go smell it, but wasn't sure if i should,

so held her back.  I had never seen a dead

baby skunk before, i had seen many adult

dead skunks.  There was no blood any where

to be found or any other reason for this

poor thing to die or why it was on

the sidewalk.  I hate to see any creature die,

even this poor little baby skunk, who never

got a chance in life.

    Oh James. love this so much. I found a baby skunk abandoned and took it home. Had it for @ 3 months in my place. She used to ride around on my foot when I walked and cuddled in my neck to sleep. The dearest wee thing and this brought back that wonderful memory. Thank you.

    Skunks are really pretty little animals and don't bother anything that doesn't bother them. The horrible stench is only if they become frieghtened or ae under attack. It's to make their enemies turn around and run. I used to have one as a pet when I was young. A good write my friend. God Bless, JB
