We were a little worried getting this little skunk baby out of a window well in North Brantford. After some gentle coaxing we were able to get him inside a release box and release him down the road in a nice forest lot. This time of year skunk babies are on the move find themselves in window wells, pools and other areas they can't climb out of.

“A Southern Fried Woman knows life is not about how fast you run, or how high you climb, but how well you bounce. They keep away from skunks, lawyers, and people who’ve been mean to them and learned a long time ago you can’t unsay a cruel thing.  A Southern Fried Woman’s path has had some puddles.  They’ve washed a lot of mud off their faces.”    The paragraph above is an excerpt from Southern Fried Women, by Pamela King Cable

Mt. Tanigawa is known as the "Alpine Plant Heaven," and plants including mountain lilies and the unfortunately-named skunk cabbage bloom in early summer. Because the mountain has a unique topography, visitors can enjoy both the flowers as well as snow on the east side of the mountain at the same time. Mt. Tanigawa has been very popular with rock climbers over the years, to the point where it has been said that the history of Mt. Tanigawa is also the history of rock climbing in Japan...

Recipe for a feeding station!  You mix: one ant-proof bowl (many available on Amazon), fresh yummy food (in the mornings only, so nighttime creatures don't get to share), containers of fresh water, strategically-anchored bungee cords (to keep the water containers secure), and plastic strips (for weather protection). Lift the whole thing at least 18 inches off the ground to keep the skunks away (skunks can't climb).

My neighbor's cat, 'Oh Gee'.  I asked him once if he'd tried putting out the food once or twice a day.  I can't, he said sheepishly, if his dish is empty, he bites me.  The cat is healthy, at 10, he still climbs trees, catches chipmunks--of which there are many, as squirrels, and sometimes skunks and raccoons come in the cat door to feast on the never ending kibble.

Bittersweet Nightshade Climbing Nightshade (solanum dulcamara): Climbs 3 to 10 ft. or more high and produces purple flowers with united yellow stamens. They are followed by fruit that looks like small tomatoes in red, green, and yellow (there is a stage where all fruits are red). All plant parts have a skunk smell. The bittersweet fruit is poisonous. Native from Norway to North Africa, it is an introduced pest in North America.
