Dear A Wildlife Pro of Philadelphia PA, Just wanted to let you know we loved all of your photos, they are great! I did have a quick question regarding a skunk in my barn. A few days ago I came home from work to feed my horses, chickens and ducks. I have a long aluminum bin I store my chicken stratch in, so as usual I scooped out 3 heaping scoops filling my bucket, moved on to feed the horses first and came back to get my bucket of scratch only to find a raccoon balled up inside a bucket (not the bucket I had just filled up) that was inside the bin. I was going to pick that bucket up, of course I was startled and ran out of the feed room. My husband gently picked the bucket up and placed it on some hay and he said it woke up and went on its way. We laid a heavy board on the lid of that bin hoping the skunk would stay away. Yesterday evening the skunk jumped out of the hay and ran away...startling me again! This morning the horse feed had been broken into, which is an aluminum trash can. Poop all over the hay and barn, like I don't have enough to clean up from my own animals. We did set a live trap tonight and plan on taking it far from here. We live in southeast PA, and I was wondering how far is far enough? And if it is a female would she have had kits yet? Thanks. I have bungee corded the trash can is that good enough? Dana

Hi there.... I live in Philadelphia, and have sighted skunks in my yard about every other day. There are a pair of them, and they are after my chickens (which I am getting rid of this week). The reason I'm contacting you is because these skunks are surprisingly bold, and unafraid. I was about 50 feet from one, and waved my arms over my head and said "go on now," but she just sat down and looked at me, unafraid. She/He later sauntered casually across my yard into the woods. Meanwhile, at the very same time, my neighbor across the street was trying to get her Lab inside, because the mate of this skunk was in her yard. I have 2 yr old and 4 year old girls, so they, of course, are my primary concern. This latest sighting was at 4pm in the afternoon, although other sightings have usually been early morning at my chicken coop. They are absolutely beautiful animals, but I want them to have a healthy fear of me, and my children. What should I do? Like I said, the chickens are gone or sprayed as of this next Sunday, because I think they are what is attracting the skunks in the first place. But, I want to be sure the skunks don't get so bold that they spray my kids, or me. Sincerely, Tim
