Skunked

I ran over a skunk last week and my truck seems to have avoided the inevitable odor but I wonder about the karmic payback for vehicular skunkicide. Poor little guy. They’re all over the place lately, dead and alive. I came across a young bald eagle devouring another roadkilled skunk. One skunk walked through our backyard a couple of weeks ago and in addition to its natural smell the critter seemed to have gotten into a bad bean burrito or something. Close the windows. I wonder if they’re looking for a place to hunker down for the winter. The geese have already been fleeing. Not a good sign.

Laughing my ass off...
"skunkicide."
Is that a spray to slay of skunks? Or is it an aerosol to kill off everything else?
