Colorado skunk problems are isolated to four species: striped (Mephitis mephitis), hog-nosed (Conepatus mesoleucus), western spotted (Spilogale gracilis), and eastern spotted (Spilogale putorius).
Striped Skunk/Pole Cat: Striped skunks are abundant throughout Colorado. They live almost anywhere they can find adequate shelter this includes urban areas. Skunks are cat like in size and have striking black and white appearance in addition to their defensive spray. Striped skunks are aggressive hunters with a strong sense of smell.
Nuisance Info: If you have a skunk
hanging around your place and want him removed give me a call (970-390-4604).
We will bring whatever is needed to safely remove the skunk(s) from
your property without any spray. If barking dogs are around they get
agitated really quick. If you happen to see a skunk stomping his feet
run like hell and contact me. Skunks have
been known to carry rabies and distemper so never approach one. Let
a professional do the job!
