• When Don and Brenda Hoch were looking for a pet five years ago, they didn’t go with a conventional choice like a dog or cat. Instead, they opted for a skunk they saw at a pet store. “Spike” was later joined by 14 other skunks who share the Hoch’s home in Hudson, Florida. While it may seem odd, given the noxious odor skunks can emit, these skunks were de-scented at three to four weeks old. [msnbc]
