We all have people in our lives that are embarrassing. Racist grandparent. Conspiracy theorist cousins. Grown-ass siblings who still can’t do their own laundry. Ex-boyfriends. But I’m willing to bet most of us don’t have any relatives who ever used two dead skunks in the most incoherent, and odoriferous anti-Obama protest on record. But somewhere in Fairfield there is a family shaking it’s head at the guy behind this:
“Police responded to the report of a dead skunk that appeared to be nailed to a telephone pole.
Upon arrival, police found two dead skunks.
The first was found with heavy string wrapped around its neck and was nailed to the pole about four feet from the ground.
The second skunk was found at the base of the pole, under the first one.
Police said above the dead skunk on the pole was a laminated sign that said ‘Obama Stinks.’
The sign also included an American flag with a hammer and sickle, in the place of stars.”
Um, gross. The article is not very specific but it’s safe to say this sociopath killed the skunks, and one way or another, he had to touch and transport them.
Have you ever been up close and personal with a dead skunk? I had a couple of dogs who made it their personal mission to keep the neighborhood skunk free. When they die, they just let it all go. The stench is so bad it burns. I can only assume that carting two of them around with you is the equivalent of being tear gassed. Anyone willing to withstand that kind of torture to make this kind of ineffective political statement will only escalate.
So if one of your embarrassing relatives recently came home stinking like skunk, call the Fairfield Police Department at 203-254-4800 or Animal Control at 203-254-4857.
