There's no doubt about it  -- the Russotti family of Englewood Cliffs loves animals.

So much that they gave a baby skunk who was brought in through Animal Control some TLC Thursday night.

"My family has been involved with animal rescue for years," said dad Rob Russotti, an animal control officer and owner of Bergen Animal Rescue & Transport.

"We do it for the love of the animals and hopefully do pass on some modicum of education to others."

The Russotti family members took turns feeding, cuddling and playing with the skunk. He will begin a wildlife rehabilitation program before he's released to live life life outside, Russotti said.
