I was trying to catch a cat that kept getting into my garbage.

I guess if it gets well below freezing again like it did last night,
I could just throw a bucket of water on it.
Then shake the skunk-cicle out in the morning.

Call the local PETA rep.

tannerite?

I'm no tree-hugger but I also see no reason to kill an animal for being itself. Call the local animal control, if there is such a thing, to have it relocated.

Otherwise you're gonna learn just how creative you can be.

If it hasn't been bothering anything, how about letting it go?
Link Posted: 2/9/2006 1:05:43 PM EDT
Throw a sheet over it and it won't spray. At least thats what I did.

I hear that descented skunks make good pets.

If YOU want to come over and open the door, by my guest.
But you aren't using my shower when you are finished.

Stand behind the cage, pick it up, then shake it. Repeat until you find out what happens.

We have a local descented skunk dealer in the area.
But they are a domesticated breed.
Supposed to be about like a cat.

Take the whole works and drop it into a tub of water/lake/whatever's closest you can immerse it in. He'll drown and you won't get sprayed. And I'm sorry, but you have to do it now. There is no way you're getting that skunk out of that trap without getting sprayed. And neither is anyone else, like animal control. It's mildly cruel, but no more cruel than a bullet through the boiler room.

Another idea is to tie a rope to a tarp, pull it over the cage to deflect any posible spray, and then open the cage through the tarp. Step away and pull off the tarp.
Link Posted: 2/9/2006 1:16:25 PM EDT
Uhhh get animal control to tranquilize it. Then take it out.
Link Posted: 2/9/2006 1:17:51 PM EDT
skunks is good eatin
Link Posted: 2/9/2006 1:18:33 PM EDT
Cover it with a blue tarp (figuring out how is the hard part), run a hose from your muffler to under the tarp. run the car for a while. painless and the skunk gets high.

I've got access to nitrous oxide.
Maybe I can put it to sleep, and slide it in the neighbor's mail slot.

throw a tarp over the cage and pin it open, let it walk out.

Make a hat out of it.
Link Posted: 2/9/2006 1:30:29 PM EDT
Damn, I guess being raised on a farm has made me a bastard.

Shoot the sob and take the carcass out back and bury it.

They are rabies carrying, stinking vermin.

The city I used to live in caught a family of skunks in my backyard that took up residence in a creek bank. The city worker put a sheet over the trap and carried the skunk ass end pointing away and didn't have a problem. If you like the furry critter be careful who you call. The city was supposed to kill anything it caught but one worker had a soft heart and carried the skunks off and released them.

PS: I wouldn't try picking it up though.

Put it in his/her pooper, chop off its head, it's go "woooweeehhhhaaaaaa" all over the place.



Oh yea...Take pics.

I assumed this was someplace you couldn't use a firearm.

Keep your tactics within the Geneva Convention, Give it a lawyer
Link Posted: 2/9/2006 1:49:18 PM EDT
Shoot it.

My dog got sprayed on the 26th of june, and tracked the smell into my house, she smelled untill November, we took her to the groomers, whick killed most of the odor, but if you got close to her, you could still smell it. You could still smell it in the house for weeks. So after remembering that, throw the fucker in the river
Link Posted: 2/9/2006 1:49:19 PM EDT
Putting a tarp over it will keep it from spraying.

DO NOT shoot it in the head, it will involuntarily spray.

If you shoot it, shoot it in the heart. 9 time out of 10 they won't spray after a heart shot.

drowning works too.

Did you want the trap back?

I would call animal control. This type of situation is what your taxes pays them to do.

Do you know where your State Attourney Generals office is at? Er... not suggesting anything here, just... er.... curious.

All your skunks are belong to us.
Link Posted: 2/9/2006 1:55:01 PM EDT
I you want to kill it without releasing the scent gut shoot it. The skunk can't tense its muscles to activate the scent gland.
Otherwise the tarp method works.
And yes they do make great pets. I had one for years that I found after its mother had been run over by a car it never was descented and never sprayed. It was jealous of the dogs and followed me around the farm as I did chores. This was just 4 years ago.

What happened to it?


As for the one in the cage.... up to you, try animal control first, if they won't take it, and if it is getting in your trash.. kill it. Even though it does suck to kill a caged animal.

Next question, how do you know it was a cat getting in your trash not the skunk.

Final question, What were you going to do to the cat?
Link Posted: 2/9/2006 2:06:34 PM EDT
Kill it with exhaust or water, then have a taxidermist mount it for you.

A skunk absolutely will not spray unless you threaten it. All you have to do is walk leisurely to the cage and let him go. He won't bother you one bit. I know this for a fact. After dark is the best time.

No thanks. I'd rather juggle hand grenades.

Or tease a rattle snake.
