    Stinky Visitor

    This poor thing was beaten up pretty bad. He was hurting and could barely walk.
    All he wanted was a place to hide out and be safe to recoupe for a bit.
    My neighbors seen him and called me to let me know he was in front of my porch.










    Then she tells me she had called the police to come down and shoot it and get rid of it.
    I was soooooo not happy! I went out to see where it was (with my camera in hand )
    When I seen how bad of shape it was in, I really felt sorry for it. He actually left me get real close,
    within about 2 feet from him. You could here little noises, and a crying sound. I was almost in tears.

    Well the State police came, he got out of his car with hand on gun, looked at me and said "Where is the skunk?"

    I said "he went inside the hole underneath my bedroom window, he's hurt pretty bad and just wants to be left alone."

    The cop says, "You think there is any chance I could get him out of there?"

    I said " Not a chance in H*** without getting sprayed, then you better run like derby horse in the Kentucky 500 cause I will be shooting you. I don't wanna to see it get shot and I definitely don't want to smell this for the next few weeks."

    He looked at me and raised an eyebrow and said "Hmmm!! You think it'll be alright right where he is until he decides to move on?"

    I said "YEP, ur job is done, now go find some criminals that need locked up and leave this poor thing alone."

    He said "Have a nice day Ma'am", tipped his hat and left. LoL

    The skunk was spared only to meet his demise 2 days later when the neighbors across the street found it trying to get underneath their house and shot it

    Re: Stinky Visitor

    Thanks everyone. I wish it hadn't gone across the street either but really it probably was best. It was in bad shape and getting worse. At least now it's not in pain anymore.

    I'm not so sure I would want one as a pet. I had a cousin that had one as a pet. He had it for probably 6 years. Friendliest little critter to boot.

    Just a "heads up" for you:

    Skunks are real high on the rabies carrier list. What appears to be "injured" behavior can also be the erratic behavior of a rabid animal. Give him LOTS of room, and if you find him dead, BURY HIM DEEP ENOUGH THAT DOGS AND OTHER CRITTERS WILL NOT DIG HIM UP.

    Better safe than sorry where rabies is concerned.

    Diggem'
    Yup. The end of a way of life. Too bad. It's a good way. Wagons forward! Yo!

    Re: Stinky Visitor

    From the description, the skunk was probably sick or injured.

    I would not have gotten anywhere near it.
