Red Rock Kayak Skunk Rescue


On Rich McKnight's 65th birthday he rescued a skunk from certain death. It was a delicate operation involving four kayakers and three hikers.  Two other kayakers felt the need to paddle west; I can't wait to hear Dave's version of this story.....while several motor boats and a sailboat watched from a distance.
Rich adds this to his list of previous rescues including a turkey vulture and a field mouse!

So the skunk jumped on the kayak and he paddled it to safety?

This story, like many kayak stories, could just grow and grow.... :)
Actually, our plan was to build a log/old tree 'critter bridge'. But I like your version better.
