So remember how I mentioned yesterday that we lost our two fish Shark Bait and Spot?
Well here is another story…
Saturday morning my cousin came be the house to help us get ready to put the house on the market seeing how she is our realtor. While we were walking through the house and talking we opened the door to the closet room where the hot water heater and furnace are, Mr. Big Truck mentioned that we had a skunk under the house which is what the smell in that room was. My cousin turned around and said “Oh I am glad you mentioned that because I thought you were smoking pot and if that was the case to each their own.” Um yeah NOT SO MUCH but good guess.
So Saturday night Mr. Big Truck puts out a have a heart trap with some apples in it to try to catch the skunk. Sunday morning we woke up and there is a little skunk in it. He manages to get it and take it into the woods and let it go. He set up the trap Sunday night and called it a day.
This morning Mr. Big Truck wakes me up at 6am and tells me that we have a problem. Ummm the fact that I was sleeping on the floor in the nursery with #babybigtruck? No the issue was there was a mamma skunk in the trap and THREE babies were ON TOP OF THE TRAP trying to get to mamma skunk. FOR REAL!?!?
So now we are up and trying to brain storm ideas as to what we were going to do with this situation. Mr. Big Truck called the police and they were of no help and they he called the township and they didn’t open till 8am. He also called a few other places that specialize in removing wildlife and again no one opened until at least 8am.
By the time 8am rolled around the babies had made their way to what we can only assume is back under the house. Mamma was still in the trap so Mr. Big Truck took her to the same place in the woods that he took the little one from Saturday and let her go. Now we are hoping that either the other 3 babies took off because they were scared or are back under the house and he will set the trap and continue to do the same thing until all the skunks are gone.
Because losing two fish in a day was not enough excitement right?
