Striped Skunk Sniffing Around

Southern California has a healthy population of skunks in and around urban areas. We all know encounters with skunks can prove costly in terms of baths and tomato sauce, but skunks do play an important role in a healthy ecosystem. Skunks feed on rodents and insects during the summer and a more vegetarian diet during the winter months.
