The skunk was a little stunned from the last landing and danced in circles in the middle of the track looking for the culprit . Needless to say , it spritzed a good sized area out front...but not inside .
After work my Dad entered the house in a rush to clear the spray zone and announced that he thought the train must have caught a skunk on the track . Mum assured him that the train hadn't . She explained the reason for the smell . He broke in a roar of laughter telling her she was crazy trying a stunt like that .
"Well you said it couldn't spray if it's back legs weren't on the ground . So , I made sure they didn't touch the floor ."
"Why didn't you put him out the back door ? It was closer !"
"I just hung up my clean laundry . Do you think I wanted him to spray back there ? Damn skunk !"
