A Tiny Rescued Baby Skunk Hangs Out in His Human’s Front Pocket as He Recovers From Abandonment

On a recent trip to the grocery store, Barbarella Fokos met up with a man known as Farmer Bob who had with him in his front pocket a tiny baby skunk named Sweet William whom he rescued from the side of the road.

I geek out as I get to meet and hold Sweet William, who Farmer Bob will release very soon, as the little guy is getting way too big for his pocket. This baby skunk was found sick and orphaned on the side of the road, and Farmer Bob rescued it and nursed it back to health. For the first 2 weeks of its life, it slept in Farmer Bob’s pocket, and followed him around on the farm.
