An incredibly shy girl named Harriet Cooper in Kent, England has come out of her shell after becoming best friends with a skunk named Humbug. Harriet’s parents are animal handlers who run a petting zoo that tours local schools. One morning, Humbug was trying to claw Harriet’s mother, Maria. Out of nowhere, Harriet scooped Humbug into her arms and started petting him, which calmed the skunk down. Harriet and Humbug have been best friends ever since.
