  •  A bit of worthless advice that my son's (11+ / 0-)

    VMI buddies imparted to me.  A skunk can't spray unless it sets its back feet.  So if you get one to run, keep it running.  And they don't run fast, so you can keep after it.  Once you get it out of danger range, you can run in the other direction.

    Apparently they learned this bit of wisdom the Old Corps-way.  A couple of guys saw a skunk and dared each other to catch it.  Apparently you can also catch a skunk by chasing it and hauling it up by a back leg before it gets the chance to set and spray.  They swore it works.

    But I wouldn't recommend a field test.  

    PS: Sounds like you had an "interesting" week.
