Baby Skunks

We were about to turn onto a street on our way
home this evening when we noticed a car had stopped
in an unusual place.
As we pulled around, we discovered the reason...
2 baby skunks were trying to cross the road.

D jumped out and directed them across and the sight of
him looking at something in the road slowed down the other traffic.
I guess when skunks are that young they do not spray, but I think
the Mama was nearby in the bushes and perhaps that might
have been a problem but luckily it wasn't!

Hope they stay safe and don't try to cross back
from where they came from.

Baby skunks are so cute. I love to see them around the yard, but Mama usually keeps them well hidden until they are pretty well grown up. I hope these two found their Mother again.
