Unexpected meeting on bicycle tour – cyclist is joined by a family of skunks

Now this is what I call an unexpected meeting.

A cyclist was out on his usual track, when a very curious family of skunks decided to stop by and say hello.

It’s not every day that you come across an entire family of skunks.

And even rarer that they would approach and say hello, as skunks are naturally shy creatures. 

That’s what makes this encounter so unique. A skunk mother and her four baby skunks recently curiously approached a cyclist.

They snif at his bicylce’s tire, his shoe, and quietly continue on their way. 

One tip, make sure you watch the video with sound. I had no idea skunks sounded like this!

Skunks are omnivorous and have, thanks to their famous defense mechanism, almost no natural enemies.

A female skunk will usually have four to five babies, which are born between May to June.
