    When local wildlife removal expert Eric McCool peered into a trap Wednesday, he encountered a strange sight - a hairless skunk.


    McCool, who has provided wildlife removal services for 20 years from Ohio to Florida, said he has "never seen anything like it."

    The unusual specimen was living under a home on North Street in Oil City.

    On first glance, the creature enclosed in a small box trap resembled a ferret. Its bare skin contained numerous folds, and the telltale black and white markings (that would have enlivened its coiffure if it had one) were faintly visible on the skin, like a faded tattoo.

    "He looks perfectly healthy," McCool said. "There are no signs of lesions or disease."

    He was surprised that the mammal has lasted through the winter without its normal coat.

    "He's surviving. How he's surviving, I'm not sure," he said.

    Oh goodness, now they will start breeding these and they will become "pet of the month" fad.
