skunk

Overwhelming skunkaroma coming in from outside. I peer outside, turn on outdoor lights, peer again. See no skunk.

Neighbor and I discussed this issue earlier today. What to do? Where does it live? Why does it spray when it could wander unmolested?

When will the malaroma dissipate? That's the big question.

Of course, the really big question is: Is it rabid, hiding under my car, and just waiting to lunge out at my ankle when I leave for work in the morning? That's the really big question.

Another question, one I've had for years... Why is this animal necessary to our life here on Earth?

What vital niche in our ecosystem does this creature inhabit? Because really; like slugs, haters, and mosquitoes: couldn't we do without?
