Tonight I was sitting outside with Pete when all of a sudden I notice him looking very intently at the other side of the backyard. His ears were pricked and he was scary focused. I looked over and less than 15 feet away lumbering slowly towards us was a giant SKUNK!! Aaaaahhhh!!! I looked at Pete and in my sweetest voice said "Pete-y c'mere, come one, come ON!!".... Thank god hes an attention whore and he trotted over inside for some belly rubs. Phew. We both could have been foul for WEEKS if it wasnt for Petes 'love above all else even life itself' philosophy.

Eww eww eww!!!!! I hate skunks with a capital 'S' so much so that I used to use them for target practice with my gun before I had to pawn it.
I'm not sure I'd brag about shooting innocent animals for fun. It makes many people, including me, think a lot less of you.

I like skunks. They're quiet and they eat gross bugs. I've almost run into a bunch of them over the years (just this spring my dogs and I rounded a corner and one was RIGHT THERE), but I've never been sprayed. They only do that as a last resort!

I'd have a pet one if they were legal here... the domesticated ones are clean, quiet, friendly little guys.

I'm also fine with people hunting for food. I eat meat, so it would be hypocritical of me to oppose that! I'm against hunting for sport, though, and especially against shooting animals just because you "hate" them. I hate the stupid noisy mourning doves that sit in the tree outside my window and coo all morning (my last dog, Scout, used to growl at them, too!), but I'd never kill them.
