Nearly skunked yesterday
Anyway, what I thought was another feral cat lumbering down the edge of the trail turned out to be a friggin' skunk. By the time I realized this, I was already on top of it. Tail went up, hissing ensued and all I could do was silently pray as I squeezed by, not even six feet away.
I now see a need for a better headlamp, lol.
I did some reading up on these stinky little guys and supposedly they spray as a last resort, not to mention they have poor eyesight. Maybe I was just lucky. I dunno.
