What is the proper response when a neighbor starts taking pot shots at a skunk in the neighborhood, but doesn't take it down until it's right outside your house (where its musk gland will relax)?
Either the smell is fading or I've gotten used to it enough that my response is no longer to return fire...
Neighborhood etiquetteanywhere would be NOT to shoot any weapon at anything unless you live on acreage & not in shooting distance to any other neighbor including a child. Sounds like a real jerk. Has he not heard of the word "ricochet"?

In the city we are not allowed to discharge a firearm unless under duress. A skunk is not life threatening so if it goes against an ordinance, I would report them for that and creating a nuisance, which he did by leaving the obnoxious odor without cleaning it up.
I am not sure if the location of dispatching the vamint would matter unless it was on your property and then yo may als have an issue.
Since you are talking ettiquette and not legalities, mybe you should go to your neighborhood assn. if you have one.
I am of the mind that I would have put on a clothespin and gloves and taken a snow shovel and placed the animal and if possible as much of the surrounding snow or dirt as I could muster and place them on his front porch.
If not I guess I would approch him and mention the obnoxious odor and the fact hat you would appreciate that he wait and kill things away from your home.
