Love Is In The Air

With February marking the beginning of the skunk breeding season, it is not surprising that the air is often filled with the all too familiar nauseating musk “perfume” scent sprayed by these animals. Even though skunks are relatively small, they can travel up to 5 miles a night during mating season, so motorists can expect to see more skunks on the roads. During the months of February and March skunk “roadkill” along Texas highways is a common sight.
