there are many skunks out near my home. they are often wandering about when I get home at nite. I just quietly and quickly walk by them....they don't bother me. I try to avoid getting too close and not startle them.

I smell them all the time. I live in a small city where the houses and apartments are very close together so the skunks just walk out in front of people and dig through the trash. I had a neighbor who would feed them dog food every morning. As far as I know nobody has been sprayed by one. The smell does not bother me at all though, I guess I am just used to it.

dear hopejordan, i've been near skunks before, but just briefly. they are very pretty, their coloring, but we are so scared of what they may do to us that we don't stick around and get to know more about them, for sure!!

I think I never seen it in Malaysia. It's American mammal of the weasel family and it's able to spray foul-smelling irritant liquid from it's anal glands at attackers. So I never been near and I don't want to get near of it. **prettyhanan**
