Be careful wandering around at night
Recently, I went out to the backyard to take down the feeder at night. This is because the Raccoons have started to attack the feeder at night and can get around all of the baffles I installed.
I then notice what appears to be trash on the ground. It gets windy around here and sometimes paper and plastic bags get blown into the yard. I went to pick it up and realized as I got closer that it was actually a really large skunk. Fortunately, we both took off in the opposite direction or my wife would probably would not have let me back in the house :-).
Actually, it's probably the same skunk from several months ago. Back then he was a tiny guy size of a large hamster, now he or she has gotten really big.
