While skunk sprayings aren't that common in this area, they do happen. It should be noted that most skunks will not spray you unless they feel threatened. This is a general rule, however, because after male skunks awake from their winter dormancy in February, they tend to spray without provocation while prowling through the wood looking for mates.
If you are unlucky enough to have been sprayed by a skunk, follow the below recipe developed by chemists to neutralize the animal's putrid odor (which, by the way, has a concentration of the same chemicals found in decomposing flesh):
Mix one quart of fresh hydrogen peroxide,
1/4 cup of baking soda and
one teaspoon of liquid soap.
Wash with the mixture while it's still bubbling.
Hopefully this works ... and next time GET AWAY from the skunk before it has the chance to spray you!
