Sammy skunk can finally walk – Mary Cummins, Animal Advocates

This is Sammy the paralyzed baby striped skunk five days after I picked him up. He was found on Mother’s Day. He dragged himself to a woman’s back door. Fortunately she called me.

Here is Sammy a few months later all grown up and able to walk. He still walks like Frankenstein and can’t bend his lower back. He can’t be released so he’s an educational animal. He goes to schools and events to show people how wonderful skunks really are.

Sammy is a little upset because I just gave him a bath. He’s in the tub to dry off. He runs around the house free at night. He is litter box trained.
