Imagine going out for a relaxing bike ride on an old jogging/hiking trail and you stop because you see something coming towards you. You adjust your eyesight, only to discover that it's mamma skunk and her four babies.

Do you run off the road and head for the hills or stay the course and pedal past them as fast as you can? Why not do what this brave soul does in the video above.

He simply stopped moving, got quiet and grabbed his smart phone to video what was about to happen. Now he has proof of the casual encounter and now, he'll tell his grandchildren "look I've got proof, skunks like me!"

If you turn up the sound you can hear the skunks communicating with each other as the sniff the bike's tire and his shoe. What do you think the skunks are saying?
