Bruce Whiteman- Small Mammal Team Leader
Q: Why do you love skunks?
A: " I love skunkies- they are not aggressive at all (unless you are a mouse), the babies are very comical to watch when they practice their stomping and butt pointing skills, and will quickly trust their handler during rehabilitation. But, strangers beware of course! They are the only critter I work with that is dangerous at both ends!"
