Cute skunk pictures

A cute couple of pictures from Yahoo: Life imitates a Pepe Le Pew cartoon.

Last weekend was a big skunk show in Ohio. One of the events was the skunk fancy dress contest. I gather from the mailing list that one of the contestants had dressed his skunk in yellow “Police Line – Do Not Cross” tape, and had actually managed to train it: when he said ‘dead skunk’, it would roll over and play dead like it was roadkill. When he said ‘live skunk’, it would jump up again. Amazing.
