Elizabeth Wildlife News:
More than once I have reminded myself to stay alert because a male New Jersey skunk is due to pass. Have you noticed that we have become a group of snipers versus stalkers? I find more nuisance wildlife control operators are waiting to waylay a male New Jersey skunk versus moving silently along and stopping and looking. For a change, go out on a nice wet or snowy morning and try to walk up on a New Jersey skunk. It adds spice to the seek out troublesome critters. I found long ago that New Jersey skunk, like humans, travel the path of least resistance. Look up a hillside and you will find the New Jersey skunk cross where there is a saddle. This is because it is a more gentle climb and crossing. More than once I have created a attic only to find New Jersey skunk using it. Much as we use game attics, game will use our attics. It also didn't take me long to realize that when people enter the suburban attics in problem wildlife numbers, New Jersey skunk tend to cross an opening to the closest path to cover on the opposite side. A disturbed Elizabeth animal control operator doesn't like to be out in the open. Sometimes we find that New Jersey skunk are attracted to the strangest things. For instance, find hedge apples and you will find New Jersey skunk. I can't explain it, but they eat the darned things right after a frost. Before a frost, they won't touch them, but after, they seem to like their bitter taste. Yes, I tasted one once. A few years ago, I wrote a story for a magazine and called them by their local name, monkey balls. The editor wrote back, "What the heck are monkey balls?"
If you have a solving conflicts between people and problem wildlife buddy try to surround them a bit and approach them slowly. You might be amazed what bolts out of the marsh grass. The large male deer came slowly up through the whippets where the logging operation had clear cut three years ago. He was headed toward the crest of the ridge above the Elizabeth, NJ summer camp where the timbering had ended and the remaining suburban roof of huge beech obstacles continued. This was a beechnut year in this part of Elizabeth, NJ near our deer camp and the delicious, milk-filled nuts that are like candy to a problem wildlife number of wild critters were scattered amongst the leaves on the snow-covered forest floor.
