What ever floats your boat I guess! De-stinked skunks, what a pet! I'll stick to my dog and 2 cats.

My sympathies to all the good folks of North Ridgeville who aren't skunk owners and have to bear this indignity.

Will the people who want to ban bear ownership also include skunks?

The actual date is Saturday, Sept. 11. at South Central Park, in N. Ridgeville. I'll be there. I've had a skunk for over 4 years now,(I now have 2) and wouldn't trade him for anything. They're not for everyone, they're not a 'feed and forget" pet. They are litter box trained, and as clean as a house cat. For any that think this is an "indignity" please come to Skunkfest and learn more about these animals.

As far as I am concerned, you haven't lived until you have been owned by a domestic skunk! I feel badly for those who feel it an indignity to experience such an incredible creature. My advice to you: think outside of the box and live a little! I attended Skunk Fest two years in a row and absolutely LOVED it! Thank you Deb, for all that you do to rescue, protect and speak for skunks!
