The Spunky Skunk

No woodland creature collection would be complete without a skunk. I was always a bit amused by skunks, if not their smell. Early on, Paul taught Hannah and me Arlo Guthrie’s song “There’s a Dead Skunk in the Middle of the Road” which we sing religiously when we drive through a smelly section of road. I changed my tune when a skunk broke into the banty coop the other winter and absconded with my favorite chicken. Still, this Spunky Skunk was a fun project for a lazy day. Enjoy!
