What to do about Skunks
Skunks have become accustomed to humans, thriving in semi-open agricultural areas and even urban areas. In the fall, skunks feed voraciously, building up fat reserves for winter dormancy. With the onset of cold weather, skunks seek out dens, becoming inactive for the winter. Areas that provide dark secure hiding places such as under barns, utility sheds and porches are common denning sites. They may appear for short periods in winter during prolonged mild spells. East central Saskatchewan has been experiencing problems this summer and fall with the high skunk population. As many of you know, The Town of Springside is no exception. We are doing our very best to work with residents to get rid of any skunks that have been reported.
For your information, a fact sheet has been attached, here, if you would like to know more about skunks and what you can do if one is near your home.
