I must make a comment as a skunk lover that you stop the maddeness of killing skunks..enough get killed every year by automobile,let alone that you have to kill them….what harm can they do in the woods??Leave well enough alone.We don’t want them to becopme extincted.!!! Let the future kids enjoy the Beauty of them and variety of color patterns on them..

Well heck, I’ll comment on the skunks too then.  They’re running all over the town I live in.  Please kill as many as you can.  I’m scared to go outside at night for fear of getting sprayed.  They’re good for nothing so wipe them out!
