Missing skunk found after police appeal
Friday 02 September 2011
Police hunting a missing pet skunk say she has now been found safe and well.
Flower, a female skunk aged two, went missing from her home on Hayclose Crescent in Kendal, Cumbria, on Friday morning.
The couple who own Flower contacted Cumbria Police for help, and the force put out an appeal in the hope members of the public could sniff out the skunk's whereabouts.
And at around 3.45pm today Flower, who is around the size of a large domestic cat and "very timid", was found by a friend of the couple and returned to her relieved owners.
