Hi, has anyone made a spray proof skunk trap out of 10" or 12" inch PVC pipe. Can anyone give instructions?

10 to 12 in pipe is too big in my view. 8 in. is about right. And they are not spray proof. A skunk does not have to raise it's tail to spray.

I had one get out of a pvc trap in the back of my truck. That was an interesting event. He was sleeping on some compost back there.

Don't worry about them spraying. They really aren't all that into spraying things.

Did you forget to put the safety clip in?
