Baby Skunk Charging Me

I was at the Sequoyah National Wildlife Refuge in Oklahoma when I stopped for the restroom. As I was going into the restroom, I saw this Baby Skunk. The Skunk saw me and charged at me. It backed away and then charged again. It did this several times. I went and got my camera and got a few photos. I didn’t see any other Skunks around.
