    That's what I was thinking David, and I'm concerned… I have NEVER seen one during the daytime hours.

    I know people who have pet skunks. Before all of the development around me we used to see them daily now not so much. I do have a family of opossum that live under the shed next door that the dogs chase up and down the fence line from time to time though.
    Bulldogs are like potato chips. You just can't stop with one.

    Ugh... Logan just went to take the trash can to the road, and he saw the skunk across the street. He's never going to leave...

    Haha, I've never seen a skunk I know some people even keep them as pets, maybe he's a lost pet skunk, they tend to show up on your doorstep

    Quite a zoo you got there...

    Our neighbours say that we have bobcats, raccoons, elks, occasional bear, but all I've is rabbits and squirrels...

    OMG!!!!
    My sister lived on a farm and her dogs got sprayed all. the. time. they still don't smell right LOL. That is the worst smell ever to try to get rid of. She had a skunk come to her front door to be let into the house!!! No more skunks for her, it's now raccoons and possums that show up at her doorstep.

    We had a bear come on the porch of a cabin we rented in the Smokies, and I heard a noise… opened the door and saw his BUTT leaving the porch!!! I was by myself w/the kids & mother-in-law!!! Luckily he left, but he was circling our cabin, and I have to admit I was getting a little nervous!!!

    I have a feeling that Wally will somehow get the "tail end" of this visitor. I keep looking for him whenever I let Wally out… YIKES!!!

    Like @Davidh said, it is rare to see a skunk in the day. However, I'm guessing it was just either REALLY hungry because it's way too cold to go out at night or looking for new shelter. Even though it's rare, I have seen 2 skunks in the daytime. Good thing you got Wally inside!

    @ddnene It is not a good sign, when a skunk is roaming around in the daytime. I have had two over the years that I had to shoot. You should have Wildlife Control,in your area......(there is actually one around here ) they may at least leave a trap for you to set, (I have done that also) if there is not shooting allowed
    in your area.
    Better to be safe than have Wally meet up and think "Oh boy, somebody to play with............."
