Skunk Convention

Have you noticed an increase in skunks this summer where you live?

They are everywhere here. It's like a skunk convention came to town and never left. It's so nice and cool out right now (66 degrees! Woot woot), and I can't open the doors because the critter is parading thru my yard.

Anyone else notice an increase in these stinky critters?

  • My parents, for 2 years now, have had the basterds making a den and dying under their bathroom.
    I also have a friend who eventually decided to downsize to an apartment, partially, because of a skunk invasion 2 summers ago : /

  • There have seemed to be a lot of them around here this year, but I don't know if there are more than there were before. My boyfriend's ex wife had one in her garage. She had to call Animal Control, and they wanted her to set a live trap for the nasty thing. She said no way, not in her garage--they eventually came and killed the skunk, but it sprayed before it died anyway.
