Baby skunks got stuck in a Jacuzzi - Hope For Paws reunites them with their mom!
It is so unusual to have heavy rain in the middle of May here in Los Angeles, but of course, the day it happens, this family of baby skunks gets in trouble by entering a Jacuzzi and they couldn't get out!
Our friends at Pacific Wildlife Rescue knew to call us for help, so Loreta and I headed out immediately! We feared the Jacuzzi would fill with water and they will drown!
I tried to save Loreta from being sprayed and offered a safe rescue plan, but she didn't listen... she wanted to go down there and hold the skunks in her own hands and hand them over to their mom :-)
The rest of the day was a nightmare because we had to continue rescuing that day... smelling like skunks.

    Maximum respect for the two of you. Loreta deserves a big red cape for her courage and tenderness in the face of action. She rocks!

      A few weeks ago my Sheltie Toby met a pretty black and white kitty at our back fence one night! 😝 he spent that night in the utility room and the next day I called my groomer. She gave me a recipe for hydrogen peroxide, baking soda, and Dawn dishwashing detergent. For any of you pet parents who encountered this, Google it because it did help a lot!! Maybe wonder woman Loretta could try it also!! 😝

    Stinkys is no match for the cutes!!! Their adult teeth would worry me a smidge though. Skunks and hedgehogs, opossums and all the multi legged critters (including kiddies) need advocates, care givers and saviours. Thank you to all who do these magical things, bless you! 💖

    I think the reason that one skunk wandered off is because skunks lack a homing instinct. So if they get lost, they aren't gonna find their way back home.

    Smh whoever owns this Jacuzzi instead of calling hope for paws should have just put a damn board down as a ramp and the mom skunk would have coaxed the babies right up the ramp :/ Another thing Eldad needs to learn to shut the hell up and quit being so bossy to Loretta or whoever he is on a rescue with. He's a nice guy but damn he annoying some times !!

    If you ever do a skunk rescue again, hold their tails down. They can't spray that way.

    Kinda wanna punch the control freak camera guy in the face.


    I bet the Hope for Paws team politely avoided Loreta keeping distance for a day or two which she thinks is due to Covid?

    I absolutely LOVE these rescue videos, but this was the first one I was frustrated by. Eldad had the perfect idea - to put something in as a ramp. Mama was right there and it could have been over and done with in 1 minute. Instead, Loreta insisted on picking them up, which not only caused unnecessary fear in them, but unnecessary stinkiness too. Lol. Plus by the time she got them out, mama disappeared. I love you guys, but it could have been handled better. We all know she just wanted to pick them up. 😂

    Skunks have such a horrible reputation... but they are such wonderful and cute creatures. The only actual reason that they are so disliked is because they spray you - in self-defense!

    I really really dont like the guy in these videos. ive watched countless and he always comes across as less than genuine and more worried about bossing everyone around than actually helping. I dunno if its just something lost in editing or translation but I would be totally ok if it were just Loreta. Unpopular opinion maybe.

      i noticed that too. when he’s with someone it seems like he just films and directs rather than helpfully coaches or assists.
