How do you kill a skunk with poison?
Consequently, are skunks hard to kill?
Skunks are VERY docile in a cage trap, and far easier to dispose of/move that way than trying to shoot them and hope they don't spray, as there is no "no spray" guarantee shot. While under the tarp, throw a chunk of dry ice in there to kill them. Hell of a lot easier to handle when dead.
One may also ask, do skunks spray when they die? A skunk will still smell even when dead, and the gland which creates the foul odor can release if the body is moved postmortem. The skunk will likely spray at the time of death, but if you are not in immediate range, your risk level is minimal.
Similarly one may ask, will rat bait kill skunks?
Rat poison sometimes kills raccoons, skunks, squirrels and other animals and wildlife, including dogs, hawks and eagles that die from secondary poisoning. However, in many cases, targeted wildlife is too smart to eat all of the poison - or even enough for it to kill them.
Can a BB gun kill a skunk?
Yes, you can kill a skunk with an air rifle. Suggest a head shot of course, but a good shot behind the front leg to the heart will do the trick as well.
