Six skunks invaded the multi-purpose facility this week before being evacuated from the premises Wednesday afternoon by a local trapper.
"It was bad in there," said trapper Ozzy Hendrix about a hour after deposing of the animals.
According to Hendrix, the skunks found a way into the building and were located in a six-foot cavity of a wall.
"They aren't afraid of anything … they walked right into the cage," said the trapper.
Getting rid of skunks isn't something new to Hendrix.
"I catch them all the time," he said. "I caught 26 under one house in the county a few years ago."
The smelly varmints were taken care of just in time.
