  • Agriculture - Beware: Love is in the air now for skunks

    It is the time of year for skunks and I am reminded because of the smell and road kill left behind. Plus, a strong scent of skunk has been lingering in the pasture this past week; and I got an Instagram video from my niece as she was clearly backing away from a lumbering black and white rodent down by the river.  We used to get them circling the house on winter evenings, but our livestock guardian dog has kept them at bay the last few years.  Their presence is not surprising, however, because it is mating season for skunks and they are on the move.
