They're back! The area skunks have returned, and with a vengence. They're all packin a full load and just itchin to let er go. Why are they back? Is it because of the few days of really freaky warm weather? Are they just plain hungry? Or are they responding to a more basic need? You know, "birds and the bees" type stuff. I know I have two things that seem to attract them. Bird feeders, and a yard that has an overabundance of grubs and worms. Several evenings ago several were actually fighting under the feeder, and one let er rip. Gag! I did learn one thing though. The stink came right in the down stairs of the house, but not up stairs. And the upstairs bedroom window was open a bit too. It must have been a full and freah load because it was heavier than air. Haven't quite figured out what to do about them. Someone said a live trap will work. To that I said "OK then what do you do with a live teed off skunk in a trap". My friend said get a big blanket, hold it up in front of yourself, and slowly and quietly walk up to the trap and drap the blanket over the trap. Then you can remove the trap and the skunk and take it some where else. Yeah, right!
