Woman Takes Pet For A Walk, But Neighbors Freak Out When They Realize It’s A Skunk

Many people love having unique pets, but usually they opt for a snake, lizard, or bird.

One family went even further in searching for a one-of-a-kind pet, and they definitely found one. Gloria Kim and her daughters decided to adopt a pet skunk.

Typically, skunks only interact with humans when they need help, like this little guy who got stuck in plastic.

That’s because skunks have a bit of a stinky reputation, but people are slowly realizing they actually make for amazing pets, as one family in Spain can attest to!

Gloria’s story is a bit different; she was inspired after she saw an albino skunk for the first time. She went to an exotic pet store and inquired about a baby of her own — and it’s completely legal, with a special permit.

Now their sweet little skunk, Seven, is definitely part of the family. He goes for walks on a leash, lives in the family home, and uses a litter box.

Gloria said she’s used to getting strange looks from her friends and neighbors, but she thinks they’re becoming more comfortable with having a skunk next door.

And Seven had his odor glands removed, so there’s no worry of him spraying anyone. Watch the video below to find out more about this adorable pet skunk!
