Man films wife close to skunk "just in case" she gets sprayed

When Kristy and Dave discovered an adorable baby skunk out foraging for food one summer day, they were very concerned that he was an orphan and needing some help. They watched from a distance to see if there was a mother nearby, but it was obvious that there wasn't. Then they watched to see if it was able to look after itself. It could have been near a nest or burrow and able to return on its own. It's very complicated to imagine taking a skunk home in your car to look after it and raise it. They could see that the skunk was actually catching insects and finding its own food. After seeing that the little baby was managing fine and wasn't in need of help, Kristy decided that she wanted to get a few pictures. It was just too cute to resist and she began moving closer as time went on. The skunk became quite unconcerned with her after a while too and she got the opportunity to get very close. The skunk even became curious about her and her camera at times, making its way in her direction. Dave, being a good husband, video taped Kristy and the skunk from a safe distance, knowing that if the skunk sprayed her, she would definitely want the moment captured on video. Dave announces that he isn't really hoping she'll get sprayed, but Kristy flashes an amused grin that shows she doesn't find him completely convincing. The skunk doesn't make any attempt to spray and Dave never needed to stock up on tomato juice, but what they did get was some very close up video and pictures of one of the cutest creatures ever. One that few of us will ever see so close up. This little skunk's face is extremely angelic as it munches away on something under a pine tree, looking into the camera long enough to give us a good look. The skunk eventually wandered off, hopefully to be reunited with his family.
