I was sprayed by a skunk, how do I get rid of them?
The Striped Skunk is the type we have in Maine, it has a black body with a white stripe along each side of its body; the two stripes join into a broader white area at the nape. Its forehead has a narrow white stripe. About the size of a house cat, it weighs 2.5 to 14 pounds (1.2–6.3 kg) (Note that the average weight is 6-8 pounds with a body length of 13 to 18 inches. The bushy tail is 7 to 10 inches long (18–25 cm), and sometimes has a white tip.
