Tonight I shot and killed the skunk that has been plaguing us. I assumed the problem was a simple one. You shoot the skunk and that’s the end of it. Little did I know I must live in the middle of the most skunk populated zone in Montana.
I took one shot and wounded the guy he didn’t spray. He crawled away and within a minute or two was back. He wasn’t startled by my appearance wasn’t afraid in the least. He crawled into the trash bag I had placed out just moments before.
He crawled into the bag. I shot him square in the… I haven’t moved him yet I have no idea where I shot him. Then a few moments later another skunk appeared in the backyard. I didn’t need two dead skunks to clean up so I let this one eat and run off like the wind. What in the world am I to do with all these nutty skunks living around me?
Yes, normally I am pro life in this case I believe the skunk was rabies invested and just way to brazen. Another sign of possible rabies. Also I do have small animals around and well if its the skunk or the kittens I will take the kittens.
