When it comes to Canada’s travel rules, it seems not everyone is on board!

A trio of skunks recently proved they’re happy to kick up a stink to get to where they’re going — when they entered Canada via the Del Bonita border crossing between Alberta and Montana.

A tweet from the Canada Border Services Agency’s (CBSA) prairie region explained that the group had shown up in Alberta and “made a stink about the non-essential travel restrictions.”

Right now, anybody crossing into Canada via land must be prepared with a pre-arrival COVID-19 test, in addition to taking a test at the border.

A ton of paperwork and documentation is also necessary — although it seems this only applies to humans crossing!

Fortunately, the trio didn’t spend too much time causing chaos for the CBSA, as they “eventually came to their ‘scents’ that the travel restriction ‘odours’ will help to prevent the spread of #COVID19.”

They safely scurried back home and it sounds like they weren’t slapped with a $750,000 fine or jail time.

The skunk family aren’t the only animals to play fast and loose with Canada’s border rules recently.

A fox crossed from the United States into Ontario for “essential reasons” back in October, while a bear cub managed to sneak into B.C. without so much as a passport!
