Skunks are amazing-misunderstood creatures and while they do not have the same notoriety as raccoons they are found often in neighborhoods in Toronto and the GTA. Skunks are nocturnal and move in silent and shadowy spots during the day, and wonder around more freely at night. Their homes are generally in burrows but they may also nest under houses, decks and woodpiles.
Skunks are thought to be scavengers. If you have skunks living in and around your house you should be careful on how you interact with the animal. The best option is to hire a humane wildlife control expert to take care of the problem without harming the animal. This is something you don’t need to try by yourself as you risk getting sprayed.
