We have a bit of a problem with a skunk our perky little beagle was barking and howling up a storm and low and behold a little skunk was slowly coming out of the pines and boy they were almost nose to nose. We snatched her up and brought her in and the skunk left. It was not threatened at all thank god. As long as the tail stays down its okay. How can I keep this skunk out of the yard WITHOUT KILLING IT.
