For all of you that have a problem with neighborhood dogs and skunks, here is a GREAT way to solve your problems. I know no one wants to hurt the dog, the dog owner is something else and most want to relocate the skunks. This will handle both. Catch the skunk in a live trap and take it to the dog owner's home. Now they can't be home at the time. If they have a doggy door, place the trap next to it and let the skunk out. Bingo, right into the house. If they don't have a doggy door, let the skunk loose is the garage, barn or shed. The skunk will not spray you is the trap is covered. This is what a co-worker did to his neighbor. The man didn't like the roo waking him up at 6 A M, so he sent his dogs over to solve his problem. Geno caught a skunk and now the neighbor has a real problem, his dogs went after the skunk in the house. It must have been quite the fight. I am betting they don't live in that house for some time.
