i used to see skunks constantly growing up, various dogs would get a snootfull of skunk-vapor and we'd have to bathe them in tomato juice & whatnot, and i had lost of close calls (coming around the corner to one of 'em doing those handstands where they do a gymnast move & crest their backs so they can peer and you and point their stinkglands at you). even now, i see 'em around my neighborhood when i go walking (i'm right by a big park) scuttling around in the dark. one used to go in my garage when it rained and never gave me any guff. if you see a skunk, don't scream and turn tail and run, just calmly walk slowly away in an exaggerated creep. screaming is not recommended.
friend was sitting on his bed watching tv, heard a noise outside, turned his head ninety degrees so he could look out of the window and GOT SPRAYED THROUGH THE SCREEN RIGHT IN HIS FACE.
