    Alcohol and/or drugs were probably involved.

    The article says it was not the case.

    You don't need a drunken or drugged person, just an idiot with a gun.

    Excellent rationality. "There's a skunk! Grab my shotgun!"

    It seems the shooter was a little trigger happy & also I've never heard of a skunk getting to be that big anyway. Alcohol or drugs were probably involved.

    The saddest thing was, the little girl was actually dressed as a black cat, but then accidentally jumped onto a flagpole with fresh white paint on it.

    Even if drugs or alcohol were not involved, the man belongs in a mental hospital, if he cannot tell a skunk apart from a child in a costume.

    Exactly. If you hit it at the right place, it'll probably stink up your entire yard anyway. Best reaction is to leave it be. I've come across plenty a skunk in my time, and I've never been sprayed.

    Stupid, stupid. Even if she was hiding in the grass with a hat that looked like a skunk, it's still idiotic to be toting around a live firearm with the intent to use it if you know there's children running around loose on the premises.

    Actually, I think it's a Pepe Le Pew reference. Where the black cat would get white paint on her and Pepe would think she was a skunk.

    Technically, you're both correct.
