THAT’S not the Easter bunny!

A once-stinky skunk, with his clout taken out, was the star attraction at an Easter fun day held for children at Crystal Peaks shopping centre in Sheffield.

The unusual North American creature, who has had his distinctive aroma completely removed, formed part of a petting zoo taken to the centre by Chesterfield company Petwise.

Crystal Peaks retail manager Laura Mathewson said the event went very well.

“Everybody expects to see chicks and rabbits at Easter,” she said.

“But it’s not every day you get to meet a skunk, even though they are extremely gentle – and this one didn’t smell at all!”
