Godfrey Wildlife Tip:
Can a skunk climb a fence?

This questions is commonly asked by farmers who implant fences deep to the ground to prevent skunks from invading their farms but later finds out that the skunks have already found their way in. The answer is yes. Skunks do climb but only need be as they prefer burrowing instead.

Why do skunk climb?

If a skunk is unable to barrow into your farm because of the fence that you have planted deep into the ground, it may opt to climb up the fence and into your farm instead. However, skunks can only climb up small fences and they do it with much ease. Its long craws enable it to up with ease. Its lightweight also sees the skunk up the fence. Walls made of wire mesh are the easiest for skunks to climb. The skunk climbs head- down when climbing down a fence.

Importance of this information

Why is this information of any importance to a farmer or anyone else who is experiencing a problematic skunk? Below are some of the uses of this information.

It enables the one to determine the best wall to build around his homestead or farm. We have found out that skunks climb meshed walls with ease. Therefore, a farmer equipped with this knowledge will never go for wire-meshed walls as a way of keeping skunks out of their gardens.

It enables the one to know how high he or she should build the fence people tend to think that implanting a fence deep into the ground is the only way of keeping skunks out of their garden. However, a person equipped with this knowledge will know that a skunk can climb small walls and hence build it higher.

It enables a farmer determine the type of animal that has been causing him or her trouble after looking for entry holes of skunk and lacking one, the farmer may be convinced that there is no skunk that can access his or her farm. However, a farmer who knows that skunks can climb need not waste too much time looking for its entry holes in the ground.

It enables one to identify the best way to remove and keep away skunks - after realizing that skunks get into the territory through the fence, one may opt to study the time that it gets in to trap it. The person can also build the fence higher and deeper to keep skunks away forever.


Skunks do climb. However, they can only climb small fences or trees. Therefore, building a fence high should also be considered as a way of keeping skunks away.
