skunk removal


Well Hyunelan, you were right on the money. I called the DNR, and the gal was quite adamant that it is illegal to transport a wild animal, particularly a skunk, and that I could either release it on another part of my property, or dispose of it. So, Mike, sorry, but he's going swimming, or will have an extremely brief but fatal case of lead poisoning. Frist, I still need to catch him, but he did test a little bit of the bait last night, so I double checked that the release was free, and we'll see what happens tonight. I'm sort of thinking that he may have been extra skitish last night with the thunder and lightning rolling through.

skunk removal


We had a skunk in the front yard with a yogurt cup stuck on his head.

I wish I still had the video of him staggering around in the middle of the morning.

You must do what must be done----Me I'm a rebel and drop the little critters in a forgotten country cemetery.

No one lives there,oddly enough so no one complains.

I can hear the cops now," Hey,fellow--show me what you have in that tool box!"

Ah, the humor of Ma Nature! So far, I have released a oppssum and a raccoon from the trap; no skunks, even though my nose told me that he was in the vicinity both of those nights. At this rate, he may outlast me, but we'll keep trying.
