Aw, I love skunks. I've seen way more than I'm comfortable with though. Saw one at my granddad's tree farm under the clothes line when I was little, though not very well. Later on I didn't see one until I saw a lone baby skunk driving around near a park one night. I had to take a second look (with window rolled up obviously). Then I saw a more whitish one running across the street at dusk one time, not too long after seeing the baby. I smell them quite a bit though.

Wow! If I had seen a baby skunk driving around I would have gone home and had a few more drinks!

Haha, the skunk wasn't driving or I'd have been in big trouble!

There is a skunk that spends cold spells in my garage. Which was an old horse stable and about 50 feet from the house. It is an older skunk and this is the second year I've come across it. So far it has never sprayed. But no dogs or anything around to scare it.

Maybe I can catch my skunk and send it to the OP to civilize the OP's skunk.

I hate skunks with a passion, was taking a shower one time and I don't know if the sound of the shower spooked it or what but I just remember one moment standing there, and next I was on the floor of the tub(yes, this bathroom was designed by a genius that put a window in the tub area). No clue if I passed out or blacked out, but all I could smell when I came to was the scent of skunk. Ever since then I've had a strong hatred of the things.

I like skunks, but then I've never been sprayed.
