Told to me by a CW, about another CW's husband. CW and her family bought a huge house, sort of out in the country, with a couple of acres of land. They are from another country, and lived in a city, so not much experience with wildlife. They also planted a huge garden, and were a bit frustrated by the varoius wildlife that would come and eat the yummy things in said garden.
So one day they were hearing noises, and figured it was a squirrel, so they set up a trap. But it wasn't a squirrel, but a skunk.so her husband, becuase he was afraid of being bitten and getting rabies, put on his winter coat, boots, and hat. Mind you, this is August in NJ. It's HOT.
His plan was to go and take the skunk to a wooded area, and let it free. The skunk however, had other ideas. As soon as he picked up the cage, pffffffffft, the skunk did what skunks will do. He was covered in skunk spray, and stunk. He runs in, throws his coat and all clothes in the trash in the garage, and runs upstairs to shower, leaving a trail of skunk stench throughout the house!
Fortunately for him, apparently a skunk needs some time to "recharge" before it can spray again, so he was eventually able to let it loose, away from the house! I about died laughing when they told me this story. Her husband is brilliant, but sadly, lacks common sense in many ways.
