Skunk update.

I got home after the sun went down yesterday so I didn't get to setup the trap. Turns out skunks are nocturnal and I didn't want to take a chance with running into the little stinker.

Hopefully I'll get to set it up tonight. Though I still don't have a definite plan on what to do after it's caught. I read online that once trapped you should approach the cage cautiously with a heavy blanket to cover and calm the skunk. And if it starts to stomp it's front feet (a warning), back off and try again later. I don't foresee this going well at all.

I'm thinking - tie a long rope to the cage, tie other end to car then drive that sucker far away. I'm just kidding, of course...
