In which River scoots a skunk.

.

Lately we’ve been having a lot of skunk visitors…

.

.

And while they only used to show up at dusk, they’re arriving earlier in the day now.

.

.

Which can make for awkward encounters.

.

.

Skunks don’t have good eyesight, and we’re finding out their hearing isn’t quite top shelf either. That being said, it’s very easy to sneak up on one….. and startling a skunk? I don’t recommend it.

So when you encounter one?

Be sure to say hello first.

  1. When I first saw your post title, I mis-read it as IN WHICH RIVER SHOOTS A SKUNK, and i thought that stinks. But then I re-read it and was happy to see that you’re still the same sweet, animal-loving Rivergirl who wouldn’t harm a flea (though, if I were Ms. Red Squirrel, I wouldn’t count on it).

  2. Yep, that tail going up would have elicited a manly scream from me and two seconds later I would have been on the other side of the property. Once you’ve been sprayed and had to deal with a tomato-juice bath, you don’t play anymore. Nope.

    But what was that noise at the end of the clip? It sounded like you were filling up an empty martini glass with rocks. Did you spot the Evil Red Squirrel somewhere just out of camera range?
