Five baby skunks have invaded a yard in St. Boniface and a Winnipeg woman is running out of options to get her yard back.

“We bought coyote urine, we put spotlights on them we sprayed them with sprinkler, which we were told to do, and they just come right back,” Sandra Klingbell said Friday.

Klingbell said her and her husband first noticed the skunks on Monday in their Archibald Street backyard. She said they were very young and no adult skunks were with them.

“They’re all over our backyard, they’re all over our front yard, they’re in our neighbours yard. We don’t know what to do,” Klingbell said.

“I’ve called everybody and it’s between 350 and 400 dollars, I don’t feel that I should have to pay for them being in my yard.”

Klingbell has a dog and said it can’t go in the back or front yard because of the skunks.

“I’m going to lose it by tomorrow,” Klingbell said. “We just want them to go back to nature.”
