Saturday Caturday

We sure loved looking out the back yard last night.
We can see stuff out there TBT cant.
He dint know he caught 2 skunks in his trap set for the groundhog.  But WE knew.
They WERENT happy. 
And we werent anxious ta get outside in the morning.  It STANKED out there.  We wonder what he will do about them..

TBT:  I got out and around the yard at 10 am and thought about the skunks I saw.  2 in the cage,  they must really love honeydew melons.  I was trying to catch the groundhog.  I walked to the cage with a large tarp in front of me and draped it over the cage.  They didn't see that as a threat.   Covered, the cage went into the large tub of water.  20 seconds of confusion, a blub, and they're gone. 

I gave them their chance by releasing them for the cage twice.  But they were interfering with my attempts to get rid of the groundhog.  Three strikes and they were out.


  1. Ooooh. I wish there had been another way, but it sounds as though you'd thought it through and there wasn't. How far does the smell extend?

  2. That's sad. But skunks are weird ones. Sometimes there's nothing else you can do with them.

  3. To attract a groundhog , rub apple cider all over the trap- I found that online for my hubby. We didn't have cider so he cut an apple and it worked.

  4. My, you have lots of critters in your yard!
    Have a super Saturday...

  6. They had their chance but didn't take it. Hope you get the groundhog.

  7. I have had THE worst luck with those in my yard. THE worst!

  8. Poor skunks...but no more smells from them...
    Now to deskunk the trap for the groundhog!


We're always glad to hear from our friends...
