A skunk has burrowed into the ground under an old barn foundation in a small pasture behind my current barn and about 200 feet from my house.
I wouldn't mind getting rid of it.
Filling in the hole hasn't worked (3x), nor has covering the hole with planks and cement blocks (4x). A live trap just doesn't seem like the thing to do in the case of a skunk.
I don't own a weapon, and I'd have to be a lot angrier than I am now before I'd go down the road and borrow one of my gun-nut neighbor's 12 rifles.
The skunk moves mostly at night, so even if I decided to shoot it, I'd have to stand out there in the dark and wait and hope I saw it before it saw me.
