Did something not go right with the skunk? Was it startled or something?

Home owner caught a juvee skunk in his own trap in the basement. I managed to carry the trap out of the house with no probs. all was going well.....as i was withdrawing the syrenge it freaked out swung around and drilled me in about a nano second. then fell over dead.

That's why it's better to just grab them by the tail . Skunk can't spray ya if you ave them by the tail . I had one spray in my trap after I ran it around into it down in this lady's basement . After that I just grab there tail and hold them up by it . Just let them dangle and have my trap waiting outside . It's good it just sprayed you and not in the house . That a simple vinager shower .

Well it's about time that all of you " I've never been really sprayed by a skunk" got baptized! You know that old "pick 'em up by the tail" Pesky, has got sprayed more times than any of us. He's got different types of showers for each particular smell!

After a few times, the olfactory fatigue sets in..and they stop spraying when you pick em up.

Wink, you know Pesky wouldn't say anything that isn't backed up by solid, scientific research!
