Cover the live trap with a dark material (i.e. tarp, blanket). Move trap to where you want to release the skunk. Open trap while cover is on and than remove cover and walk away. Within minutes, the skunk will walk out of the cage. (By covering it, the skunk does not see you or feel threatened.) My father-in-law has been doing this for years when a skunk wanders onto his property. He just relocates the skunk to another area.
use a live trap that is covered baited with chicken, the cover is for the fact a skunk will spray when it sees you DO NOT LIFT COVER!!!
Cover the live trap with a towel or blanket. Open the door, place a rod thru the wire to hold it open, stand back and wait for the skunk to exit.
place a non hurting trap catch the skunk and wait until is dehydrated gently take the trap and place it outdoor to release the skunk
how long will it take a skunk to die of starvation in a trap
a chain was stuck into a guys throat and had 1 mintue to be free
You need to call a pest company they can live trap it if you want. Or call an animal rehab center.
Use a small trap just big enough for the skunk to get in. It MUST be small enough to prevent the skunk from lifting it's tail. The skunk can't spray if it can't lift it's tail. Once the skunk is trapped he may be safely relocated. To release the skunk simply place the trap on the ground and open the door. I know that sounds scary but the skunk will nonchalantly walk out and away.
It wouldn't be very good for it to 'live' in a trap cage. It's best to let it free.
it will die

They'll trap the skunk with a special trap called a Havahart trap. This is baited with several types of smelly fish. The pest control service will also wear special clothes to avoid getting sprayed. Pest control services handle skunk problems differently. Many services has professionals that can remove the skunk without causing any harm to the animal.
Animal Control has told me to use raw bacon with salt dumped on it.
Yes a skunk will take eggs and kill chickens. Late at night when the chickens roost they are very docile and will allow a predator to come right up to them without much fear.

If you have a vet who is willing he/she can trank the skunk from a distance. If not, you can cover the trap with a few towels or cloths. Place it on the trap with a long rod. Move slowly and speak in a soft voice while doing this. Talking constantly but quietly will calm the animal. Once the cloth is over one end of the trap, stop for a moment and walk away for a while. When you come back, the skunk may be hiding in that end of the trap. Talk again as you come closer. Place another cloth over the other end of the trap, again using the long rod. Once the trap is covered you can move it without to much trouble if you remember to always talk as you are approaching and moving the trap. Use gloves while moving the trap so it cannot bite you. Use cloth that you can throw away in the event of the skunk spraying within the trap. If you don't startle it, however, it will not spray. Skunks have very bad eyesight and can be surprised when you are close if you don't talk to let it know where you are. You have a much greater chance of getting sprayed if you surprise it. If the skunk is repeatedly stamping, walk away for awhile and let it calm down. Skunks are really very mellow little animals and will allow you surprisingly close if you take care to present yourself as harmless. To remove it from the trap you must kill it, using a rifle and shooting the skunk works. if you attempt to free it, it will spray you as it is leaving the trap. Skunks are pests and sometimes moretimes than not erradication is often a good thing.
in Toontown it is impossible to get trap free
I would call a professional. They probably will use a trap to catch the skunk. Then they will take away the cage while wearing a hazmat suite. Just make sure that the person you hire will release the skunk and not just kill it.
Whether or not you can use a live trap to trap a coyote and kill it in the trap depends on the state you live in. To find out for use, check with the environmental police in your area.
Amy set up a love trap for sonic and tails and cosmo got stuck in it.
Some 30 ears of corn were devoured two nights ago. I set out a trap thinking it must be raccoons (and it might have been) but I captured a skunk in my trap. There is, I know, a whole family of skunks that live next door. I am betting that skunks do eat corn.
You should either call an exterminator or get an animal trap.
move very slowly and cover the trap with a pool liner so when it sprays it wont get on you
