I HATE SKUNKS

I REALLY do. There’s one under our house right now. It smells awful. and I mean the WHOLE HOUSE smells TERRIBLE. We’re getting a trap to catch and release it tomorrow. Bleah. Disgusting. I read that even without spraying, skunks can still secrete awful odors. You can’t eliminate them with poison, b/c if they die under the house, it can take up to 2 years for the body do break down and as it breaks down, the sac containing the musk breaks apart and releases even MORE odor (in addition to the rotting smell). Ah well. The flip side of this is that I’m very grateful to HAVE a house, even with a skunk living under it.  :)

  1. Blech! What does Magic think of all this?

  2. oddly enough, she couldn’t care less. She doesn’t even seem to notice. I KNOW her nose is in fine working order b/c she goes crazy when we cook any sort of meat, etc. Keep in mind that this IS the same dog who simply glanced up at us when we had that last, big earthquake a couple of years ago!
