I would at the very least carry a .22 cal rifle in the truck in case I caught a skunk. I imagine that shooting it a 50 or 100 yards would be infinitely better than trying to whack it with a bat, release it, or stick a syringe in it.

We just use a shovel to kill a trapped dog. Whack them over the head with the flat of the blade, you got to hit them hard. A bat works to but I hate to get that close to the whirling devil. :bow:
The last best place.
