When I went into the barn yesterday I was met with the faint but obvious smell of skunk. Yeah! Not just a wild animal but one with stink spray! That is always good with kids around. John agrees with me that our new resident is likely a skunk by the smell of things.
So tell me, my few precious readers. How do we solve this issue? Trapping, hunting, filling in holes, flooding, poison? I want to rid ourselves of this pest without coming away smelling for weeks. I'm just glad we don't have a dog.
I didn't watch the Partridge Family much growing up (I was more of the Brady Bunch type.) but all I can think of right now is the episode where the skunk got trapped on the bus with them and they all ended up stinking.
Country life is anything but dull!
If you have any ideas that might help please leave a comment!
An exit hole from the main den. There are at least three or four more outside the barn in the field.
Bikes buried by the digging. The den is on the other side of the pile. Not cool!
