Let me tell you about our night visitor—-A SKUNK!
Spring, summer, and fall are all TIME OF THE SKUNK! They do not hibernate in the winter but they do become less active.
We have another skunk!
Mom said unless it tries to get into the chicken house just LET IT PASS ON BY!
No chasing it!
Did you know skunks only live in the New World and they are part of the weasel family!
They also have a NASTY spray this STINKS! And if you get sprayed it is comes out has an oily, yellowish/greenish liquid!
Just ask HANK! The grand kid’s dog and our goodest friend!
OH! YES! They can spray up to fifteen feet. (and the spay smell can travel a good mile.)
Hank took one on and tried to kill it…phew we can smell Hank clear up here!
Oh, yes!!! Mom says that we all need to be careful because skunks are the number one carrier of the Rabies Virus!
So all you dogs out there BE CAREFUL!!!
Because Hank REALLY, REALLY, I meant REALLY STINKS!!!
