They were all over people's yards anyway due to trash and fruit trees. I chase them when they're in my yard since I don't want the dog to get them. I feel bad for being 'mean' and I'd let them be if it means they were safer in my yard than someone who would kill them.
Now here I've seen about two of them but there is a crazy amount of skunks, which I don't fuck with it. Except a baby that waddled over to me from the middle of the road. I guess it wandered away from the patch of woods so I took it with me for the night, fed it and released it back where it came from since it while it was young, it was bordering the age to where they already start foraging.
Wild skunks are shit though. Too many and there's been some rabies cases that in turn are transmitting to the shitty outdoor cats that all over this neighborhood.
