I moved into my current house last Septemeber and everything was perfect exept for the Skunk that lived under my house.
The skunk wasn't a problem at first, beside the odd scare when taking out the garbage. It really didn't end up being a problem until last weekend when it couldn't handle the snow/cold any longer. The skunk began clawing its way underneath my bedroom flooring. I woke up in the middle of the night last week to the sound of the my little critter friend eating it's baby under my bedroom floor boards. The sound, unforgettable.
Things took a turn for the worse after the 10-15minutes of the baby skunk screaming. The smell started to pour into my vents. Within minutes the whole entire house smelled like skunk discharge. Why didn't I call the exterminator the next day? Ignorance I guess, I decided to play it out for another week in hope the Skunk would be at peace after destroying its new born. I was wrong, the skunk decided to treat me to another ventilation discharge at 3 in the morning last night while clawing at my floor boards in desperation to avoid the flooding from all the melting snow over the weekend.
Why am I sharing this awful story? Needed to vent (pun intended) while the extermantor does his thing. Anyone else care to share any of their skunk encounters?
My grandparents live out on a farm. Last summer me and a bunch of my cousins kinda through a party for my friend. Anyways at like 3 in the morning after drinking more than anyone ever should i decided it was time for a walk. I asked my girlfriend if she wanted to come, apparently she was too tired.. so alone i walked into the field... i was like 5 minutes in already tripping balls cuz it was super dark. I heard a noise turned around and just started sprinting. After like 10 steps i tripped cuz of a gopher hole. I laid there for a minute before getting fucking covered in the worst smell ever, i fell right next next to a massive skunk that i obviously scared the stink out of. I smelled terrible for a week.
I was waking my uncle's dog a while back at the race track. We were almost back to our trailer when he spotted a skunk in the woods and went after it. Being a big German Shepred there wasn't much I could do to stop him. He ended up getting sprayed point blank in the mouth. Talk about smelly breath.

My uncle had a pet skunk growing up and one day Snoopy (the skunk) ran away. A few days later he put up flyers offering a reward to whoever found the skunk. One day someone called him saying they found his skunk. He and his mom went to pick it up and brought it home in the car only to realize a few minutes down the road it wasn't his pet skunk. They pulled over and opened the back door and waited a half hour for it to crawl out. Surprisingly nobody was sprayed.
I was woken up to two tomcats fighting outside my window yesterday at like 3 in the morning. It was so loud I had to open the window and yell at the mother fuckers. the one was sitting right there outside my window. Fuckin cats.
My friends dad opened his front door to find a skunk sitting on his porch. The skunk immediately sprayed his dad and the spray went through the open door and into the entire house. Their house smelled like skunk for over a week and no matter how much he washed his clothes he would come to school reeking of skunk and it would stink up our entire school. Lets just say nobody wanted to be his friend for a week.
Also, on 2 separate occasions I have woken up to bats flying above my head in my room. I couldn't figure out why this kept happening until one day while I was chilling in my room my cat came in with a living bat in his mouth.
One night when I was roughly 11, all of the smoke alarms in our house went off around 3am. Definitely the worst thing to wake up to. We thought our house was on fire. The sound of them still gives me chills
Don't waste money on an exterminator set a trap filled with vegetables and little Debbie treats and twinkles, once caught which will be in no time calmly put towel over trap, tie rope to trap, put trap in body of water, wait 20 minutes dump trap contents in woods
A few years back at school one of my roommates was MIA one morning he came back a few hours later claiming he woke up on the roof of a bagel shop on downtown main street. no skunk involved but confusing none the less
