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.06/12/2014 at 1:51 pm #68408
Is Mynah a bird? :)06/12/2014 at 3:03 pm #68411
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?06/12/2014 at 8:02 pm #68443
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. http://www.myballard.com/forum/topic.php?id=1279406/13/2014 at 11:23 pm #68541
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.06/14/2014 at 8:02 am #68554
Gardening Angel, who woulda thunk it? Dope grow in Blue Ridge. And they’re not sharing …. What is the world coming to these days? ;)06/14/2014 at 8:42 am #68555
I love the smell of a good crop in the morning;)06/17/2014 at 10:45 pm #68767
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!09/09/2019 at 1:13 pm #114855
