Durham Wildlife Tip: Skunk predators: What animals eat skunks?
To answer this question, it's important to first establish What is a Durham skunk?Skunks are found in the North and South of America. They are a cat-sized mammal, distinctly recognised by their black and white striped fur. They are well-known for their ability to spray a liquid with a foul odour as a self-defence mechanism.

Are they hunted by ground predators?
Yes. Some larger carnivores will prey on Durham skunks, they are an option for a meal. However, due to the skunks' defence mechanisms, the amount of ground predators is fairly low. Many animals will stay away from skunk as they are almost impossible to eat without being sprayed on. Another factor that comes into play is there fur, due to the stripes on their fur, skunks have some ability of camouflaging and hiding themselves amongst woodland.

Are they hunted by aerial predators?
Unfortunately for skunks', their spraying of foul odour is useless to them when being preyed on from the sky. Larger bird species such as owls and hawks have no or a limited sense of smell. This means that the foul odour that puts off a lot of other predators will not be noticed by them, leaving skunks vulnerable to these kinds of attacks. Other than their spray, skunks have very limited means of self-defence. This means that their highest predators will be large birds like those mentioned above, along with eagles on occasion.

Are there any other factors that can cause elimination of Durham skunks?
As they live in woodland areas, many woodland areas in America are surrounded by roads. This means that a skunk often can fall prey to cars passing through. Skunks make up a lot of the road-kill through America. Nowadays the use of pest animaleffort to remove a pest animal is pretty much restricted to parts of the swampy South where nuisance wildlife are run with dogs and attempts to catch a critter are at fast-moving targets at extremely close range. No effort to remove a pest animal is effective to maybe a distance of 10 feet to the urban wild animal, with good for perhaps a distance of 10 feet to the urban wild animal farther. Ideally, pest animaleffort to remove a pest animal should be used inside 10 feet to the urban wild animal for quick, humane humanely trap and relocates.
