- Gas mask against organic vapors, dusts and mists
- Vicks under the nose
- Grin and bear it
- Wash it in the peroxide/baking soda/Dawn mix 5-6 times after removing all the essence
- Skin it when it's about 90% frozen so that the essence won't get on you


All methods need to be done outside or under a good fume hood!


I've seen all these methods listed.


I tried skinning one as it was thawing out

and as it thawed the scent started leaking out. I didn't puncture it, it just started oozing out as it thawed. I'd also like to know how to avoid that! The UPS man said he could smell it almost a mile away.


UNDER WATER

I've done a few skunks, if you skin them while they
are completly submerged, under running water the smell is not to
bad, then freeze and flesh while the skin is just begining
to get pliable and you should be O.K.
