This was a first for both Evan and myself. Taking the smelly stuff out of a skunk. Skunk essence is used for lure while trapping. It's something that will get most animals' attention and they like to come investigate when they catch a whiff.
You can find skunk lure pretty much anywhere online. Although, since it's trapping season, the pure essence("pure quill") is hard to find this time of year because of the high demand. So on to plan B, just squeeze it out all by yourself!! :)) There are easier, less messy ways to do this. Evan's Lieutenant got his out with a needle. We didn't have a needle and we don't live near stores so......medical gloves and some good strong squeezes will do the trick!
|One of the cutest pictures I've ever seen!!! Annoyed that he takes the best pictures when he's holding a dead animal.|
|Taking the creature to the other side of the yard....|
|I was SOOOO terrified that it was going to squirt on me. But we soon found out that this was just poop. LOL|
|Oh and there it is!!! Squirting right out just like a bottle of French's mustard after it's been sitting in the cupboard for a couple of months!! Yummy!!!!|
|Those two little ninnies are the glands.|
|And there's some more!!!|
|It was a small skunk so we didn't get a lot.|
