    came home tonight and saw 3 baby skunks by the driveway :)
    they were cute... watched them for a little while and took some pics and a video with my phone
    was only able to get pics of 2 of them
    the 3rd went through a crack in the rocks and down the hill before i thought to grab my phone

    lol, what yourselves, mama is probably close by.

    and soon they'll be mature enough to make your house smell as bad as B's office usually looks.

    pretty sure momma got hit 2 days ago.... lol it stunk for a while.

    E says they don't get stink saks until 'puberty', so these shouldn't smell.

    And my officee- yeah, its a mess.. slowly but surely cleaning it up.

    kinda funny though, one has an almost completely white back, one has 2 defined white stripes stripes down its back, and the third has an almost completely black back with a small white V up by its neck

    it's a 2-handed operation to hold the phone in a proper direction, or one for 'tall screen'

    coined it.

    why not catch them and have the stink glands or whatever removed, then keep them in the yard to tend to the bugs and weeds in the garden?

    plus, theyd be a great robbery prevention, nobody jumps into a yard with 3 skunks running around.

    If you take the venom out of a cobra then all you have is a belt.

    Just dont get close to them.

    I guess they also eat bees. I have a few that cross through my backyard. I just hate when they get run over and stink for several days.

    From what I understand they actually make great pets if you have them de-glanded.
