I never thought I’d say this… But a beautiful skunk was spotted by Fish & Wildlife PEI.  What makes this skunk beautiful?  It’s a very rare, Albino skunk.

From a far it looks more like a cat, but believe me, you don’t want to attempt to pet it.  Fish & Wildlife PEI say it’s rare to see one, not just because it’s a genetically mutated animal, but also because being such a bright colour is not so safe for wildlife.
