She said the skunk had not eaten and the trapper could not get it until Monday. The caller wanted law enforcement to shoot it. Feather River Wildlife officials were advised, but they said that skunks were not their jurisdiction. Grass Valley Animal Control representatives also said they could not respond to a skunk call. Feather River Wildlife then called back and said they would relocate the skunk that night.
