Raccoons, coyotes, opossum... all nothing compared to nature's walking stink bomb: the skunk. And word is their population in the city is on the rise. City Room reports that residents of northern Manhattan and the Bronx are fed up with their unwelcome guests, which they believe have multiplied over time—animal control workers have reported an increase in sightings, which they blame on spring mating season. Since last year—when trying to relocate the skunks proved futile—residents of Washington Heights and Riverside Park say the skunks have now returned and "solidified their grasp" on the neighborhoods. One resident told the site that if you hear rustling in the bushes, it's probably a skunk (not good news for dog walkers!). Let's just hope they don't get The Rabies.
