Skunks Are Mild-Tempered and Mostly Nocturnal
Skunks in Wyoming are designated as predatory animals and can be shot or trapped any day of the year without a license.
Skunks are mild-tempered and mostly nocturnal. They will defend themselves only when cornered or attacked. Even when other animals are nearby, skunks will ignore them unless they are disturbed.
