Skunks

Asked August 11, 2019, 9:22 PM EDT

Why are so many skunks running around my neighborhood? Is there anything I can do to get rid of them? One sprayed my dog in broad daylight in my yard!

Hello,

I would start by contacting your city animal control officer and see if they can provide trapping services. Services provided varies between municipalities.

If not, they should be able to direct you to a professional trapper that you can hire.

Other than trapping, there is not a lot that can be done to discourage skunks from residential areas unfortunately.
