Did you know if an injured/diseased skunk winds up in your back yard, continually spraying his foulness all over and driving your dog crazy, NO ONE will come get it? Not even if it's obviously paralyzed and writhing with pain for 6 hours straight.
The game commission will advise you to "wait until it dies then scoop it up with a shovel and dispose of it in your regular garbage can." And the folks you call and offer to pay to come get it (local pest control services) will kindly say "We don't do skunks."
BUT if you make up some story about the skunk having rabies...the same game commission officers will come and shoot it and take it away. Uh huh.
Skunk on da ground, skunk on da ground, what 'cha gonna do with that skunk on the ground?
