Windsor’s mayor and councillors have been bombarded by angry animal lovers after protesting the city is going to implement a skunk trapping program. PETA distributed the local politicians’ contact information under a campaign heading: “Urge Windsor, Ontario, to Halt Skunk Killing!” The funding will cost around $80,000. The argument was that the city needed to do something to address the growing number of skunk complaints from citizens. Before the vote, council was advised that most, if not all, skunks trapped under the program will be euthanized.
