Of all the urban wildlife found in many neighborhoods, skunks may have the worst and least deserved reputation: although armed with a powerful spray, they keep rodents and other pests in control, hardly if ever harm people or property, and have rather striking looks. Anyone still unconvinced should watch this tiny, adorable baby skunk go about making friends.
Youtube user NimsTV was taking a walk with his girlfriend Sam when a pocket-sized skunk dashed out of the grass and began to frolic with his feet. He captured a video of the beautiful black and white creature — no bigger than a squirrel — chasing after Sam with the nimbleness of a cat and the persistence of a dog. Could the attraction be the video maker’s black and white sneakers?
