Milwaukee Wildlife Control: Skunks Immune to Snake Venom?
Skunks and humans have an uneasy relationship with one another. Many people mistakenly believe that skunks are actively trying to attack them with their smelly spray, which is not true at all. In interactions with humans, skunks are docile creatures that prefer not to spray and do so only when they have given ample warning and there is no other alternative. Skunks do not belong in human habitations, so if you find a family of them living in your home, it is time to call for humane skunk removal. While skunks are fearful of humans, snakes are another matter. Rattlesnakes and their other venomous cousins are animals that humans fear, with good reason. Skunks, however, have no fear of snakes and can literally eat them for lunch.
