Skunks invade uptown Hoboken

Hoboken Skunk Alert: Several residents & dogs sprayed!

Skunks seem to have invaded uptown Hoboken. Hoboken411 has received several emails about skunks in various areas. Near the Hudson Tea Building, as well as the Shipyard Park between 12th and 13th.

At least two residents (and their dogs) were sprayed in the past couple days. Residents note that they were walking on the sidewalk, not in the park itself.

Be careful out there – it’s next to impossible to get that smell off! Carlos, who’s dogs were sprayed last night on the southern part of Shipyard Park – bathed his pooches for over six hours to no avail.

Well, the exterminator hasn’t done a very good job. I saw a golden retriever get sprayed on the 14th Street pier last night. Does Hoboken have an animal control unit that can take care of this?

It is the administration responsible for the garbage which the skunks and other vermin are attracted to.[quote comment=”209497″]Well, the exterminator hasn’t done a very good job.

Hoboken has all sorts of excuses for not taking care of the public health issue of vermin created by the lack of proper sanitation. Today I heard such excuses as the city just won a “Clean Community Award” to the excuse “its the residents fault”, and “we have garbage ordinances”. Of course they would also like to claim that it is just one or two skunks so that the “root cause” of the lack of proper city sanitation remains covered. I ask you guys, is it worth it to have this type of administration in place that shucks it responsibilities… Read more »

Most politicians ‘skunk’ the public they are supposed to serve.

Heard the FBI is good with working with skunks.

I had heard years ago that bathing in tomato juice gets the smell out. Good luck!
