he came in after the first skunk episode, with big holes tore into his back. coyote probably maybe just another dog.

he is larger than a rat terrier but not near as big as his airedale attitude.

How old does a skunk have to be before he can use his defensive weapon?  Newborn?  First year?  When is it no longer safe to pick-up a young skunk?
I got sprayed by one that was about two months old! :o Worked at Boy Scout Camp years ago. We were moving tent platforms and there was a family of them under it. The platform got dropped in a panic, killing the mother skunk. Two of us went and rounded up the 4 little ones. I got sprayed by one. They ended up being fairly good semi-tame pets around camp. As long as the tail is held down they can't spray, and you hold their neck so they won't bite. As long as they don't feel threatened, they will not spray.

I was thinking of you guys that got skunked when I saw the little skunk making his rounds in the yard in the rain this morning.  :D
