A Stinky Tail of Romance

By Paula Carpenter
It’s that time of the year when love is in the air! Literally! No, I’m not talking about Valentine’s; instead, I am talking about the nauseating musk “perfume” sprayed by skunks. With February marking the beginning of the skunk breeding season, we can expect several more weeks of pungent odors to be in the air as these animals wander around in search of romantic trysts.
