Skunks-How to remove Scent Glands


Skunks-How to remove Scent Glands-The scent glands may be removed from young skunks by a very simple operation. It should be done when they are very young, about the time they first open their eyes, and the wound will heal in a few days. They may be operated on when as large as small kittens, but it is neither as easy nor as pleasant. Sit on a low box or stool with an old bag on your knees; put the skunk in the sack with only the hind quarters exposed, hold it between your knees, and with a small sharp knife make a or 3/8th inch incision just over the glands, just cutting through the outer skin. The glands are about the size of a cranberry and are easily located. With a small sharp awl, lift up gently on the glands at the same time pressing down gently on the surrounding tissue with the flat side of the knife and the glands will pop outside of the skin. Now lifting up on the awl, cut the gland through the middle, letting the other half go back to place. The reason you should not remove all of the gland is that it is firmly united to the rectum, but they can never scent if operated on in this way and they do not seem to mind it much.
