I was chased by a skunk this morning, that is all I have to report (as my field experiment is failing terribly due to drought).
It was a very pretty skunk, and it didn’t try to spray me. I think it just wanted to scare me off its territory and show me how was boss…either that or defend its mate, who went running off the other direction (she was pretty too). After I walked a few paces away, he gave up and ran away.
I wish I’d had my camera, but I didn’t so here’s a crappy flip phone photo of a blurry skunk running at me. (It looks like an impressionist painting)
