Strange skunk story / question / thoughts
Last night I was sitting on my back porch.
A line of tall shrubs about 20yds from my seat and I hear something on the other side of them.
Lots of critters around no big deal .... and then I see a skunk walking backwards in between 2 of the shrubs.
But before he comes completely out from between the shrubs I can see he is pulling on something with his teeth.
He did it for so long and hard , I thought was pulling on a root from the shrub.
But then I see what he is doing when he succeeds is his effort.
He was dragging a dead skunk .... and the dead one got hung up around the shrub.
Well , he got the dead one pulled free and continues dragging it backwards up a little hill into my back yard.
At the top of the hill he stops and looks like he is biting on the dead skunk or eating it?..... but then he starts dragging it again ........... and he drags it right under my large shed.
Skunks have been under there off and on for years .... so I think it's safe to say ...... he drug the dead skunk to his home?
I been running google searches trying to see what his was about or normal or whatever .... and came up empty handed.
So since we are mostly outdoor minded folks here ...................What the heck??
I wonder if he killed the other skunk even.
I can't find anything that tells me the skunks eat other dead skunks .... let alone drag them home to do it.
