Ponder this over the weekend

Are skunks offended by their own odor?

Is it like the human equivalent of body odor?

All because I saw a dead skunk on the way home last week and I don't have time to elaborate on it so talk it over amongst yourselves. I want a definitive answer by Monday.

Have you scoped out MinnPics lately? Really? You haven't? You should. It, like the rest of Minnesota, will be taking on hues of Spring in the coming weeks.

my guess would be 'no' but they KNOW they stink becuase they use it as a weapon.

now my co-worker must not know he stinks becuase his smell is KILLING me!

I had to capture and release a skunk one time for an animal rescue place.

The litle bastard was spinning in circles spraying everything in sight.

The smell doesn't offend them but I think it does sting their eyes if they are in an enclosed space.

I stunk for a week after that episode and had to throw my clothes and shoes away.

My definitive guess is that skunks are not offended by their own odor. But now you have me wondering if they ever get sprayed by other skunks - and how they react.

P.S. Are you going to check out Natasha?
"Adultfriendfinder." Hmm...

I have come to the conclusion that skunks don't know they are offensive, and neither do people who stink of body odor.

Maybe they just get used to it... or maybe they LIKE it...

Ewwwwwwww!

Only spray when threatened, probably the scent let's them know if it worked- and they are still alive!
