First, I'm always amazed at the power of the skunk spray.  If only there was a way to harness the magnitude with which the odor permeates such a huge amount of territory.  Hasn't science looked into it?  And if they haven't, why not?

Now to the crux of our story... I've always wondered why every year around this time when Winter turns to Spring, at least in the way the temperatures fluctuate, it seems almost everywhere you go it smells like skunk.  We're talking different parts of the county and beyond.  Are that many skunks getting run over by cars?  Are that many skunks getting pissed and spraying an area?

As it turns out, it's more simple and now more obvious than that.  Apparently, it's mating season for skunks.  So here's another couple questions...  Why is the mating season so early?  And do skunks attract each other with their spray?  Man, I would think even a skunk would be like: 'I'm sorry but that's way too strong for me'.  And one more question: Am I thinking too much about this?  Get the whole story by clicking HERE.
