I am from northern Michigan. I live in an old house with a dirt basement. This morning in the house my dog got sprayed really bad. I know skunks don't hibernate, but it is winter and we never see skunks in Michigan in the winter. Now my house smells, dog smells, and we have a skunk in our house. There is no way for this skunk to leave the house because we have 3 feet of snow all the way around the house. Secondly, I don't want the skunk in the house with us. Finally, how do I get rid of it? Shoud I use a live trap? Should I shoot it? What can I do? We had this problem 4 years ago, but the skunk moved out. We blocked all the possible entryways a skunk could get through, but now we have a skunk in our house. Please help.
