As I noted in my last post, I’ve recently been dealing with large portions of our Vancouver lawn being torn up at night by a critter of some kind, foraging for chafer beetle larvae. I think I’ve finally found the culprit.
Shortly after 6 a.m. last Wednesday, as I was heading off to work, I espied through the darkness–barely–this skunk digging up a neighbour’s lawn. I haven’t seen a skunk in our area for ages. Lots of raccoons, yes, and various other critters. But it seems it was a nocturnal skunk that was doing all the damage.
