Loving the wrong animals

A while back I wrote about the baby skunks my daughter had trapped at her stable/kennel.  Yes, they are stinkin' cute, but they are dangerous pests.

Some animal rights people don't like the idea of trapping wild animals, even in live traps.  Here's exactly why skunks (and also bats)  should be removed away from humans and pets. Five family members are taking rabies shots and their dog in quarantine for 6 months. I wrote about my experience with bats here.

Just recently there was a bit of an uproar in a neighboring community about rubber traps being set for coyotes that were roaming in a city park.  Someone didn't like the rubber traps because the coyote appeared to be in pain.  Apparently that person does not know that coyotes are predators and will feast on small animals including cats and dogs
