Skunks in the News

Avalon is in the news today regarding the removal and/or relocation of skunks.  Decided to look back on my blog, and found 6 posts where I mention the nuisance of skunks:

As far as I know, skunks are not “native” to the island (I grew up by the high dunes and not far from the 74th Street sanctuary- never saw one when I was young). 

The situation reminds me of the ferral cat debate- animal lovers versus those who classify them as rodents.

    I don’t remember skunks in Avalon growing up either. We certainly spent enough time in the dunes and at the various parks and wildlife areas around the island and I don’t ever remember encountering a skunk on any of our island adventures.

    We never had a skunk break into one of our forts!
