For the past couple of nights I have seen a skunk feeding in the grassy area behind my apartment building. I had the windows open last night and heard a strange scratchy noise, like one of those plastic grocery bags blowing in the wind. So I looked outside, and saw some white moving around on the ground. I assumed I was correct in thinking it was a plastic bag (the dumpsters are also on the back side of the building and it is not uncommon for the wind to blow up some lighter pieces of trash if the dumpsters get too full), until my eyes started to adjust and I could see the black form encompassing the white stripes. A little skunky! And he (or she) was back tonight. I'll have to keep a look out and see if my little Pepe keeps coming back.
