With all the beautiful wooded acreage and farmland in Eads, you would think skunks would find somewhere else to set up housekeeping besides your home! Although skunks are peaceful, gentle creatures who never attack unless provoked, most people don’t want them around for a very obvious reason! These lovely animals can definitely stink up the place, especially if there are babies present.
Mating season for skunks begins in January through mid March, and by spring the mother skunk will have given birth to anywhere from two to five babies. Baby skunks are born hairless and blind, but their black and white markings will show within a few days. Around the age of six weeks, these little ones will be toddling after their mother as she teaches them how to scavenge for food and look out for danger.
Baby skunks can spray just like adults, but fortunately their spray is not as strong. And because the babies cannot control their spray at this age, they can easily spray when frightened. Its very easy to tell when you have skunk babies!
