According to Torontoist and Reuters:

Canadian wildlife officials are looking for a brave driver prepared for a 2,200 mile trip to take a stinky stowaway skunk back to her home in California. But the skunk, who survived a seven-day journey across the United States and into Canada without food and water, after being accidentally locked away in a transport truck, is having a hard time finding someone to give her a ride home.

Dear Canada,LAist will come to your country, we will pick up the noble animal, we will return it to its home.

We'd love to bring the skunky back.
