I HATE skunks. HATE HATE HATE! The smell came wafting into the house just as the sun came up. Mom's dogs started barking so I grabbed the gun and went out looking for it. Couldn't find him. Put the gun away. Got the kids rounded up for the bus. Start morning chores. Man it really stinks out there. 3 dead chickens in the coop. Darn it. Let my geese out of their coop 2 hurt. Now it's personal. I'm going to blast that critter to kingdom come. I could have stood it if were animal that didn't waste it's kill, and actually ate the animal.
