Earlier this morning the dogs and ducks were having a cow....so I went to investigate. Skunk near the chicken coop. Of course when I went for the 22, my hubby had moved the shells and I by the time I located them that skunk had disappeared. So I decided I would work on the fencing around the run to put the horses in and graze down the tall grass. Less room to be hidden. After I was about done, I walked around the edge of the duck side of the run to find a rooster had flown the coop and was having a fit, then the dog came to investigate and guess what was hiding right against the chicken coop behinds some boards, a BIG skunk. This time I was more prepared and although the shot was tricky because of the boards and I didn't want to get sprayed or accidently shoot a chicken, I killed it. I don't think it was the first one I saw this morning though because it wouldnt' have been able to sneak around me so it means one more out there. But the rooster knew what he was doing and was trying to get rid of the skunk. They never fly out of the run, lol.
