Skunks…if you’ve ever had to live in close quarters with them, you know their bad reputation is well deserved (at least in regards to the stench).

Kemp watched this nasty slow-motion skunk spray video to start off his research. We only recommend it if you have a strong stomach.

After polling our office, we found that many of our own had experienced similar run ins with the bushy-tailed moochers. Tap (+) in the app to read the full story in Outside Magazine, and enjoy some of our tales below.
