I rehabilitate skunks, weasels and badgers.

During my 24 years as an Animal Control Officer, I gained invaluable experience handling wildlife.

Skunks have always been my passion. Though rewarding, it's like performing diaper duty with a bomb. They have the potential of going off in your face yet I've only been sprayed a few times.


  Although rewarding, not all
wildlife rehabilitation is
easy, as Jackie shares in her
