Owner Shocked To Find Dog Playing With Skunk In Garden

A dog-owner could not believe his eyes when he discovered his dog playing a game of chase with a skunk. Justin Gornall woke up to his wife Stephanie telling him that their dog Oliver had gotten out and was playing with the stinky critter in the backyard – a claim seemingly so farfetched that Justin didn’t believe it. So, Justin, from Rawlings, Maryland, headed out to the yard, where he managed to not only discover the hole Oliver had escaped through, but also saw his dog still bounding around joyfully in the grass, playing with the skunk. Just like how a couple of dogs would usually play, Oliver ran around in circles and wagged his tail, while the skunk hopelessly tried to catch him. Justin’s neighbor, Ashley, managed to capture footage of the moment on September 22, which received a viral response online.
