Skunk shots...

I shot this skunk the other day with my camera.



He was in our yard in the middle of the day.
That's not good. If you see them out in daylight, the could have rabies. The should be nocturnal.


Then The Baby shot the skunk.


Then The Man shot the skunk.

Then the skunk shot the air.

And all was stinky.

The end.

You must never shoot a skunk...they leave you a gift that keeps on giving! But I guess you know that by now! LOL Come say hi :D

skunks have adapted so well to the human environment that few are nocturnal any more...most of the ones around where i live are out all the time...mostly at night but it is not at all unusual to see them out during the day, especially now when they are finding food for babies...

Aww, country life=) I actually shot (with a shotgun) a skunk that was in our yard cuz my hubby wasn't home! I was shaking but I got it! I wasn't about to let it live since it was right by our house and the kids play out there! Yikes!

That's interesting Mary! I've never heard that.

and beki--it may not be true in your area! i'm in new england and if you have rabies out there, i probably wouldn't take chances either! rabies is very rare where i live...and most of our nocturnal animals, coyotes, too, have become daytime critters as well as nighttime...they feed all day long...;-)

My husband was telling me that in rural Fort Worth, he used to see mama skunks and their babies all the time in the day :) I don't think they are all nocturnal.

We had SO many skunks last year!!! I hate seeing them in the day for the same reason! I'd rather not see them at all!

The skunks know where I live and where my bedroom window is because if ever they are going to spray, they always seem to do it right outside my bedroom window, right before bed, so that I'm dying in the heat and gagging by the stench. I think skunks are proof that God has a sense of humor. What other purpose could there be for those nasty, little things to be on this earth?

The men just got down to business with that skunk, haha! Saw a whole documentary on skunks on PBS and they are fascinating little critters, really. There are so many varieties I had no idea! :)

LOL Oh, skunks. I've never seen one in Delaware . . . so I guess that means there's at least ONE good thing about living out here! I miss the midwest dearly - but the skunks, not so much :)

lisa said...

Oh that made me laugh. My little one does the same thing to squirrels in the birdfeeder!

I HATE skunks...sorry, but why on earth did God create those nasty, stinky little creatures?! Blech! Glad your man got it! If I packed heat, I would have gotten it too!
