Skunks in Edmonton

Sometimes skunks are kept as pets, though this is illegal in most states because of their role in rabies transmission. Skunks are members of the Mustelide family, a group of carnivorous mammals that includes weasels, martens, and badgers. Found throughout almost all of North America except the far north, skunks often live in suburban areas-unbeknown to their human neighbours including Edmonton.  Even though skunks make their appearance in the spring and summer they are not true hibernators. In Edmonton even in more temperate climates skunks venture out of their dens for short distances when temperatures are near the freezing mark and snow conditions are favourable.

 

Skunks are beautiful-misunderstood animals and I really enjoy being able to help take care of the little ones until they are old enough to be released back into the wild where they belong. They are an important part of our environment and most wildlife rehabilitators will not take in baby skunks since they already have their hands full with other wildlife.

 

Skunks are nocturnal-they need a quiet and dark place during the daytime and the wonder around in the suburbs of Edmonton at night. Their homes are usually in burrows but they will also nest under houses, decks, woodpiles, etc. Skunks are considered to be scavengers, but they prefer to dine on clover when garbage is not present. Skunks are nocturnal, and if a skunk is encountered during the day, or if it is aggressive, a person should suspect that the skunk is rabid.

Skunks are dormant for about a month during the coldest part of the Edmonton winter. They may den together in winter for warmth, but generally are not sociable. Skunks are not always the stinky pests that you might think. Some people think that they can actually make great pets. However, they must be farmed and raised correctly in order to be domesticated pets. In general skunks are mild tempered animals that will not defend themselves unless they are cornered or harmed. They usually provide a warning before discharging their scent, stamping their forefeet rapidly and arching their tails over their backs.
