Stinky business...

Harbor City - another adult striped skunk was released after being trapped inadvertently. The homeowner was trying to trap a raccoon that lives under his home. We advised him of trapping regulations and will continue working with him to install a one-way door when the time is right.


As for the skunk... one of our new rescue team members, Diane, accepted the assignment and did a stellar job! Way to go Diane!


The most difficult part about these situations is getting the trap doors to open and stay open.

The skunk was freed on site. Relocation of trapped wildlife is prohibited for very sound and humane reasons.

We're always in need of volunteers to respond to emergencies like this one - we also need on-call transporters. The need in the greater Los Angeles area is quite dire. If you'd like to apply for a volunteer role, please fill out an APPLICATION and send it in along with a signed WAIVER.
