A search is underway today to sniff out a pet skunk that has escaped from her home.<br />
<br />
Sky the skunk managed to sneak out of owner Sharon Tyler's back garden after a gate was left unlocked.<br />
<br />
The striped mammal, which is carnivorous, is said to be 'fully loaded' and could release its foul-smelling spray as a defence mechanism if approached.<br />
<br />
But Miss Tyler said that Sky is nervous and is more likely to run away from a stranger.<br />
<br />
The 55-year-old has roped in a fellow skunk owner Jayden Parr who has been walking his pet on a lead around the streets of Christchurch, Dorset, in the hope of picking up Sky's scent.
