As you have probably smelled, there is a skunk problem here in the Lewiston valley. Skunks are mostly nocturnal animals and are seldom seen during the daylight hours. When it gets dark, skunks become active and roam the area in search of food.
Skunks will eat just about anything and are especially fond of dry dog and cat foods and of fruit. They are also carnivorous and will kill and eat small animals such as mice and chicks.
When not active, skunks seek refuge under outbuildings and decks; in thick brush, rock piles, and abandoned rodent burrows.
