It's Haught's Wild Kingdom here on our little plot. The chickens have brought out a plethora of wildlife. We see this beautiful skunk almost nightly now, we've named him Mullett (this was Music Man's idea, I cracked up, it stuck). The boys spotted a "rat" a few days ago running away from the chicken's pen (luckily they were inside their coop for the night). It turns out it's probably a mink as it has a long body and not too much of a tail. Either way, not boding well for the chickens and their eggs. Dog. We need a dog.
This video was fun, I was so close to Mullett, and he's not phased by us. Not safe for him as far as fear of humans goes, but he sure is pretty. I've never seen a skunk that has so much white on it, he's mostly white with a long, luxurious tail. Maybe he should be Peppy La Pew after all, he's quite divine.
Wishing you some wildlife adventures of your own, ~Peacemom
