    Quote:Cover the trap and knive or shoot the skunk. I have watched the federal trapper do this many times. If done right (RIGHT), there is hardly any smell. Myself, I am glad to have the trapper do it. I watch from a distance, just in case.[​IMG]

    So are skunks an issue with chickens, seems as they they are always in my neighborhood. Last year I let my dog out at 5 am (dark) and he was literally greeted by a skunk in my fenced yard. I thought it was my neighbors black cat until I saw the white line...That DD (dumb dog) would not back off for anything...of course he got nailed! But now I worry about the girls!
