    It's bad enough to have one but tonight sent daughter out to shut chickens/pigeons up and we now have a whole family. tomorrow have to give them the shotgun welcome. I gave them the BB gun welcome tonight. If they are smart, they stay gone......

    Break out the lead welcome wagon, skunks like any predator are working on a genetic/internal clock. THEY WILL BE BACK as long as they are still walking.

    I thought bunnies where eating away at my lettuce and the cabbage on the perimeter of my garden. We put out a trap filled with fresh cabbage leaves. We caught ANOTHER big groundhog. I am so sick of those critters. What they don't eat they tunnel under. They cause alot of trouble in these parts of Virginia! I feel for you dealing with skunks [​IMG]
