A skunk in Britain has lost a quarter of his body weight after going on a diet.
The animal - named Mr. Bumbles - was put on a crash diet after his weight reached almost 15lb, which is twice the recommended weight for a skunk of his size.
Mr. Bumbles was given to the Tropiquaria Zoo in Somerset, South West England after his owners admitted to feeding him two greasy bacon sandwiches a day.
He has now lost 4.5lb after following a strict diet of fruit and enjoying two long walks a day.
