A skunk drinking from the bird bath in our Prescott front yard. Skunks visit on most nights, we are very careful if we go outside during “their” hours!
Our neighbor’s dog Snow, a siberian husky mix, caught and ate a skunk in their backyard. The neighbor was awoken by a fracas is the yard, went out to check and there was Snow eating a skunk she killed. Yes, she had been sprayed. So they had a real mess to deal with.
I had smelled skunk a few times in the morning, but had not seen one. Thankfully our dogs were not involved.
This is an older photo of Snow, snarling at Stacy through the fence that separates our yards.
