Is there any threat other than possible spraying to feeding wild skunks?


We have a family of skunks who have been visiting us to eat cat food. We are debating on putting them a bowl of food away from the cat food because we know cat food is bad for them. Last night they let us get about 3 feet from them without even caring. So are there any negatives to feeding the mama and babies?

    With all due respect Jennifer..... What about squirrels, raccoons, and birds?

    I agree with JThomp42! No only that, but if you continuelly feed them, they will continuelly come back your way! If you have other animals in your home, you will not want these beautiful black and white critters around!
