When DH and I were at Earlham for New Student Orientation, we saw a skunk! It was at night, when we were heading to the parking lot by the science museum, where we had left our car. A group of people just ahead of us had turned around, saying there was a skunk up ahead. We all made a wide berth, and it was at night, which means I couldn't see it very well. But it clearly was a skunk, just kind of rooting around in the grass.
Later in the week, DS called us and said he had been walking back to his dorm sometime in the evening/night, and had seen a skunk walk across the sidewalk about eight feet in front of him. He said the skunk paused, looked at him like "Oh, hello!" and then waddled away.
I realize this might not be a big deal to many people, but as a city dweller, I was quite surprised!
DH is watching a nature show on skunks right now, which is what made me think of this. Based on what I see on the tv screen, the babies are very cute! But I have mixed feelings about skunks just wandering around the campus. Oh, well, it is kind of cool, as long as they don't spray (or bite!).
