Name: Jane Hoffman
I just looked up white skunk with black stripe to see
what it was we saw, and I found your answer that there is probably no
such skunk. Well, there is one in Portsmouth, NH, and it was on Cabot
Street tonight walking across the road and entering someone's garden. It
was indeed mostly white with black running down the middle of its
back. I was really surprised to see it myself. If I had the right kind
of camera and could find it again, I would take a photo.
This was on Feb. 12, 2004, at about 8:00 PM, and two of us saw this white
I wouldn't be too surprised. Variations in typical colors and markings is
not too unusual.
