    I’ve noticed several times in the last three weeks or so, the very strong odor of skunk when I’m out walking Mynah in the AM. I never noticed it before in Seattle and assumed they just weren’t present in town. The odor seems to be strongest along 105th between 9th or 11th and 14th, but I also have been smelling it on 14th near Woodbine.

    Anyway, just a heads up in case you or your pet runs into one. Definitely not a pretty operation to deodorize a dog or cat that has been sprayed, says she with the experience of trying to do same on three farm dogs when we lived in North Dakota.



    Is Mynah a bird? :)



    I have seen a few live skunks in Ballard, but they’re usually on the move. Perhaps it’s something belonging to the skunk cabbage family?



    Mondoman, Mynah is my dog, about 75 lbs of mostly german shepherd in appearance picked up from the OHS a few years back. She and I walk about 5 or 6 miles a day.

    Lou98107, I think these are on the move because I smell it in different places. Skunk cabbage I would expect the odor to emanate from a fixed location.

    FWIW, there was a post in 2012 on the old forum here by “cloudblues” but I can’t see the 11 responses.

    Hmmm….a few months ago I smelled a skunk smell around Stone Way and 41st. A local worker explained that it was a pot grow shop in one of the buildings nearby. She said that it was REALLY stong during the harvest.



    Gardening Angel, who woulda thunk it? Dope grow in Blue Ridge. And they’re not sharing …. What is the world coming to these days? ;)



    I love the smell of a good crop in the morning;)



    Last evening as I drove through the Market St / 3 Av intersection, I smelled a very strong skunk odor. It dissipated as I drove south. I had almost forgotten that frequent VT smell!



    These topics are good for me to work on, but we need some work on it for 123helpme review. I guess that there is so much to do here that we will not be able to learn anything new from it.
