Grand Theft Skunk? Something stinks here…

Police arrested two people last week for the theft of a baby skunk from a Animal Crackers Pet Store in Sarasota, Florida. It is reported that the animal in question was valued at a whopping $400.

$400 for a freaking skunk? I have those in my backyard. Anyone want to buy a skunk? They are not descented, but that can’t cost that much…

I suppose baby skunks are cute enough, but they only grow into one thing. Big ugly skunks. Pepe Le Pew they are not.

Authorities reported they arrested the 21-year-old skunknapper the next day when he tried to return the skunk to the store.

What’s the matter? After a day he realized the skunk stunk as a pet?

Authorities also arrested a 20-year-old woman connected to the theft while she was at work.

The man who actually stole the baby skunk, was charged with grand theft (skunk). The woman was charged with accessory to grand theft (skunk).

Be Safe, Be Prepared.

    I’m not sure why someone would want to steal a skunk, but I can only think that maybe the purpose would be for a gag gift.
