This afternoon, after rescuing the opossum in the cage trap, WES was referred another call from the Santa Cruz Animal Shelter.
Apparently a skunk had gotten stuck in a fence bordering two properties. Its head-end was on one side and its business-end was at the neighbor's.
I used a sheet to shield me from the skunk's protest as I got a closer look at the situation.
The skunk was in good shape - bright and alert and seemingly uninjured.
I was able to squeeze a couple of fingers between the skunk and the wood where I began cutting away using a hand saw.
