The Skunk Rangler

Sunday, October 02, 2011

What a crazy week it has been ... to top it off, my Mom had an unwanted visitor to their garage.
She called Thursday night to ask if we knew how to get rid of a skunk !!
Sean was on a business trip, so I said .. Put something smelly like tuna near the garage door and out onto the driveway to see if it will leave.
I then drove out to their place and decided to make a dash into the garage to get their car out.
I ran in, backed the car out .. then started to investigate with a flashlight. It looked like all was clear. I checked behind things etc. and couldn't see a skunk. We thought he had vacated his new home.
We closed up the garage and my Mom would clean up after him the next day.
Friday night my Mom called .. Nope, he was still there, she saw him while she was cleaning up after him .. and she ran out quickly and closed the garage door.
Sean and I headed out on Saturday morning to get that little guy.
Armed with our trusty live animal trap, a delicious can of tuna, cover-alls, goggles, and a hockey stick we captured him and then took him to the fields to release him.

No skunk was harmed in this capture and no spray was discharged from anyone involved :)

Now I ask you .. .isn't he a good son in law ??? hahaha

    LOL, CJ, you guys are VERY lucky! I love the idea for the tuna, I think you should write to Clover Leaf and suggest they list it as a product use :-). Bet your mom is very relieved...MJ
