We had our friends Darrell and Bethany over for drinks and conversation the other day and right in the middle of the social gathering a skunk got captured in one of our garden traps.
It took awhile to figure out how to release the little bugger. Putting the cage in the car or truck to take the varmint to Peacock Beach seemed like tempting fate. So even though skunks can eat bees, I decided to let it go in on the property. We all stood around trying to think of the best way to do this. We finally came to the conclusion that we should throw a tarp over the trap, then prop open the front with a stack, and hope for the best.
Fortunately there were no casualties or amusing stories beyond this point.
We went back to our garden party.
