Another skunk freed

Check out the latest skunk release video. It demonstrates the technique of freeing a skunk from a cage trap. First, the cage should be draped with a bed sheet or large beach towel so it's covered entirely. This is done very, very slowly and quietly. Next, the door must be propped open. Next, while backing up, the fabric can be slowly pulled off the cage, revealing the animal - this will encourage the animal to move to the front of the cage and out the opening. 

This skunk was inadvertently trapped by someone hoping to capture a feral cat. Tip: Set traps for cats during daylight hours only, to avoid trapping nocturnal wildlife.
