OHIO -- A woman in Ohio is known as the "skunk lady." And she doesn't mind one bit.

Deborah Cipriani loves skunks, and has over 50 of them living in her home. They roam freely.

She called her home "Skunk Haven," a sanctuary for unwanted skunks.

"We do a lot of educational programs with them, we go to scouts, fairs," Cipriani said. "I love my skunks. I would not be without my pet skunks. Skunks are not for everybody. Some bond to you, some bond to one person and not another. They have all different personalities just like people."
