HOFFMAN ESTATES, Ill., April 28 (UPI) -- A clever baby skunk impressed a group of animal trappers with its ability to evade capture.

Animal Trackers Wildlife of Hoffman Estates, Ill. shared a video of the tiny skunk as it outsmarted the crew and escaped back to its family.

"This baby skunk is one tough customer, and super cute," they wrote. "Here, he and his brothers and sisters show how to escape from their greatest threat, the trapper!"

The small skunk can be seen approaching the trapper before quickly backing away after identifying him as a threat.

Once the trapper attempted to capture the skunk after filming it for a brief period, the skunk quickly darted behind some shrubbery to meet up with a larger skunk in the distance.
