• My animal companions and a baby skunk

    I was outside with my mother and my 2 dogs, who I love more than most things! It was night, and a baby skunk tried to run away from our house. My dogs attacked and killed it, and my mother and I think that this was from the same family of skunks that they scared a few weeks ago. They were sprayed, and smelled awful!
    Now I don’t know whether to be mad at them for killing one of the most precious creatures I’ve ever seen, or be proud of them for reaching something they’ve been trying to do for weeks.
    Either way, i know they’re dogs and don’t know any better, but it still made me really sad. My mother and I even went over to it and checked it for life… I’m really upset by this.
    Any thoughts?

    Don’t be mad at your pups, as they were acting on instinct. I understand why you’re upset, I likely would be as well. It’s never a happy scenario for me to see an animal killed. I think it’s best to forgive your dogs and move on from it as best as you can. I’m sorry that you had to experience this.
