Finding a pile of gravel dug from under my driveway in a hidden area surprised me. I pushed the gravel back in and put a barricade in front of the area so it wouldn’t happen again.
The next day, I noticed another hole by my step. I put the dirt back and the hole would appear again. I decided to call animal control and they said, "You must have a ground hog." They would be out to set up a cage to trap it.
Before going to work the next day, I went out to inspect. Wow…it was a skunk, a baby skunk. Let me tell you, those baby skunks smell as bad as adult skunks!
If you find wild critters around your home, try going into our MCPL Research Databases. Go to Home Improvement Collection and type in "Animal Traps." You’ll come up with a few articles that could possibly help.
