This just came down from my skunkchat list. Los Angeles County is trying to keep a qualified wildlife rehabilitator, Share Bond, from renewing her permit because she works with skunks. I am familiar with this woman’s work. Among other things, Share gets rescued skunks across the California border in a sort of underground railroad. Skunks are illegal to own as pets in CA and when they are discovered, the animal control people hand them over to her to convey across state lines instead of putting them down. She will no longer be able to do this and her wildlife rehabilitation work if her request is denied.
Please sign the petition to help her get her permit.

It’s just like in Missouri, if you find baby squirrels that have fallen out of the nest due to loggers, you’re supposed to just let them lay there and freeze to death instead of nursing them back to health.
Thanks for signing!
