Damage Caused by Skunks

Skunks have a bad habit of digging up lawns and rooting through unsecured garbage. This can cause damage to landscapes and be a source of constant bother. Skunks often roam in areas where household pets also frequent and the result of one meeting a dog or cat stinks!

In addition to the unwelcomed noxious odor, skunks like many other small mammals in Michigan can be carriers of diseases. While they may look cute, skunks also have very sharp teeth and claws which can cause injury or illness.
