Basically it comes down to a Coyote Control Skunk Removal territorial clash between your dog and the coyote. Both could believe that your yard is their area. Dog owners of large and medium sized dogs might have little to worry about.

Its quantities normally decrease as uninhibited fields and pastures become wooded. Though, roadside and lawn mowing, or any preservation practice which stops the growth of a forest canopy, favors the sustained existence of skunks. Residential areas that have both lawns and big, mast creating shade trees frequently offer optimal habitat for skunks. Striped skunks breed in February and early March. The Coyote Control Skunk Removal females then give birth in May, frequently in old woodchuck burrows, to an normal litter of about six. It is not uncommon to see a female skunk with a line of little black and white reproductions following her across a wet pasture or lawn on an early July morning.
