Can baby skunks spray?


Baby skunks can spray. Skunks spray when they feel frightened or threatened, and baby skunks are more likely to spray than adults because they tend to frighten more easily.

When baby skunks are present, the mother is usually nearby. If there is a skunk den on the property, the mother may be in there. If her babies are approached, the mother will almost certainly rush to defend them and may spray. Skunks, including babies, also bite, so caution should be taken around these animals, no matter their age.

Skunks should never be fed human food. They require a special diet found in nature, and feeding them human food can cause illness or death.
