Skunks are in the same family as beavers and weasels. Most Salt Lake City residents are aware of skunks' unique method of defense, and most people will not approach skunks for this reason. Your pets, however, will be curious if they see this medium-sized critters in their immediate vicinity. Skunk spray can temporarily blind humans and pets, and skunks can tear up landscapes, so we recommend you don't approach them if you are not well-trained.

Keeping Skunks Off Your Property
Skunks are often found frequenting properties that have lots of vegetation and bugs. They congregate around decks and patios, as those areas create ideal hiding spots for them. Skunks are not picky eaters, often consuming mice, rats, vegetation, bugs, and even trash (just like raccoons do)! Critter Control of Salt Lake City's professional technicians will remove skunks from your property and implement prevention techniques to keep them from coming back.
