dead skunk in my yard

    Last night, I'm cooking out in my backyard. The kids are playing, the dogs are running around, it's a nice night! While the food is cooking, I take a moment to clear out some poop and I notice what appears to be a carcass in the corner of the yard next to the fence. I quickly bring everyone inside right away and call AC. They send local police who take a look, determine it is dead and safe to dispose of. The thing is, I don't know how long it had been there or what. Dogs are UTD on all shots, but is there any danger to the dogs involved with a carcass in the yard?

    Color me surprised the dogs weren't already all over it. If your dogs are UTD on shoots, you should be okay.

    Did you dispose of it, or did AC take it to test for illness/disease?

    Thanks, I figured but needed that reassurance. The odd thing was, it didn't smell. I disposed of it myself. I was surprised they weren't interested in taking the body away.

    I'm with Joe on this. My dogs would have been at it and rolling on it before anyone even knew what they were up to.

    You should be fine though. If it makes you feel better, bleach the area but IMO, its not really necessary.
