Skunked--right in the face---


Pardon me for a few minutes--dinner will be delayed---

I went out to check the trap==a raccoon has been causing trouble--

I didn't grab a flashlight--rocked the cage with my foot--and got a full blast of skunk right in my face----

I'm going to shower and dose up with 'skunk off'-- Yuck--

I have ran into skunks from time to time and you will not forget what they smell.

But otherhand sure I have fought racoons before.

Merci,

You omitted step one in the procedure where you get on the ground and rub your head ( both sides ) on the grass and weeds or whatever you can find.
