A few days ago we went outside to do our daily chores, goats, chickens, ducks etc and noticed that our alpha rooster was dead. My wife found him, head missing, in the middle of the pasture. When I went out there we both noticed a very strong odor of skunk. This rooster was not a friendly guy, however we always kept him because he was fearless. We always joked that he should have been buried a long time ago, we both have been on the recieving end of his spurs. However, I noticed that where he was killed the ground smelled much stronger like skunk spray. Our thought was he put up a fight, as he was the only bird missing his head. Well we are very upset to see he was killed. After going in the goat shack we came across two more silkies roosters, half way buried. The skunk smell was just as strong inside. Heads still attached. We did a roll call and noticed that we were missing more. All in all it was 4 roosters and one Runner hen. One of our little bantam roosters is gone too. That morning, aside from the smell, all the animals were on high alert, the Nigerian Dwarf goats wouldn't go in there "house" to eat, and they live to eat. I did some research, and couldn't find anyone who had a similar story online. Well last night I decided that this skunk needs to go. I decided that trapping him was my second option. After sitting outside for 4 hours after sunset, my eye got tired and I called it a night. This morning, sure enough, we caught the skunk using a peice of fish and an egg. I hate doing this, as I never have before (I have taken a skunk for a drive before) but the vengeance and anger leaves me with little other option. I just wanted to share as I haven't seen too many stories of a serial killing skunk before.
