We have those here too lol! Night before last, I heard this HORRID screecing noise out back, jumped up and, the flashlight and shone it out the window. I didn't see anything, but my nose was suddenly assaulted by skunk stank! My dogs had dug a hole under the garbage shed the day before and the skunk was using that as an access hole to the garbage! I had put some rocks in the hole so they would stop digging, and the skunk wouldn't be able to get in there. Well he must have gotten his paw or something stuck between the rocks, (or maybe he was just SUPER mad and yelling at me lol), when he was trying to get back into the garbage shed. Anyway, I put more rocks in the hole and buried it back up! Skunks are the reason I am leery about taking my dogs out to the bathroom at night because I don't feel like giving a tomato bath and having my house stink....I hope "Flower" was scared away and will not be back.
I was outside last week, and I saw a wild cat, "Flower" in the next driveway, and 3 deer in my yard eating my grass. And I live in "city" limits! LOL!
