So, as you can guess from the title, yes I have a skunk that has decided it likes my barn.. Not only the barn, but the stall that my horses sleep in. Not quite sure how to handle this without getting sprayed, my horses sprayed or the stall sprayed.
Discovered this situation this morning. Thought it strange that the horses were wet from the rain we got during the evening (usually they'd be in the stall) and that some of the hay wasn't touched (near the opening of the stall). Then I noticed something had dug a bit of a hole in the corner of the stall? Hmmmm......
Wasn't until I was dumping the wheel barrel onto the manure pile that I saw the skunk walking up to the barn and WHAM! All the pieces started to fall into place. All kinds of tracks around the barn and in the paddock!
Any suggestions to eliminate this unwanted "kitty" would be very much appreciated. BTW, has anyone else come across a similar "unpleasant" situation?
