HOW TO SKIN A SKUNK

Hi! Last week I filmed a video tutorial on how to skin a skunk. Here it is:

Instead of starting with a ventral or dorsal cut, you'll want to skin around the vent (aka the anus, aka the butt, aka the "junk") the same way/depth that you would cut for regular skinning. After you go all the way around the vent, you pull the whole thing out and dispose of it far, far away.

Watch the video for information about gloves, how to finish skinning, and what to do if you get a lil' skunk juice on your hands. Spoiler alert: it's NOT tomato juice.

If you find the video useful, consider making a small donation of a dollar or two. Donations are very much appreciated because they allow me to continue to create quality content without ads. If you donate, I'll also troubleshoot and answer your skunk questions (within reason) via email.

Happy skunkin'!
