Skunk Spotting: Family of skunks spotted in Riverside

Local

It’s something you don’t see everyday, let alone in broad daylight or in the city. 

A mama skunk with several babies in tow. A Wichita couple was on a walk near Sims Golf Course in the Riverside area when they spotted the large family. 

“We see a lot out by the golf course a lot of fox and sometimes you’ll see possums and raccoons but a little family of that many really surprised me,” said Belen Puga, man who spotted skunk family. 

And in case you are wondering, skunks are mostly nocturnal, but they do come out during the day if there is food or if they have been scared out of their sleeping spot.
