Yesterday we got home from our running and I went to go water my hanging baskets. I start walking down our little walk in front of the porch and see a dead something laying on the edge of the walk and the landscaping. I figured it was a baby bird that had been dropped by a Mama bird. Upon closer inspection I find it is the head of a skunk. And with no trail of blood or sign of the rest of the carcass it left me thinking what the?? It was thankfully not smelling but I was seriously perplexed and nervous and stayed inside the whole darn day.
Joe got home late and took care of it, in the rain no less; thanks hubby. But it's still on my mind. How on earth did it get there?
- An animal dropped it off, but why was there no trail of blood?
- A student or maybe a not student is pulling a prank on us? This would be pure evil, I hope it's not this. How sinister.
- A bird of prey accidentally dropped it while flying by. This seems the most logical.
I'm just afraid that there are more skunks maybe living under our porch or something. Not cool. But I have to get brave or I'll never have any outdoor fun at all. It's been a rough week in the yard for the Papesh's. My thumb got skinned up doing yard work, Tommy got stung by a bee and got a bunch of briars in his feet, I had a large splinter find it's way into my foot about a centimeter deep that took Joe forever to dig out, and now we have animal heads making their way to our yard. Again, what the ?
