This is not just hypothetical, we've been trapping a lot of nuisance raccoons, possums and groundhogs, and I dread the day I find a skunk in the trap.
I've heard that if you trap them in a live trap that's covered in a tarp or something so they can't see you, they won't spray because they can't see you. And then to kill it you drown it. Honestly, I think it's horrible and I wouldn't be able to bring myself to do it.
