Animal rights group wants moratorium on skunk kills in Windsor
A local animal rights organizations is renewing the call to stop killing skunks in the city of Windsor.
The Association for the Protection of Fur-Bearing Animals (APFA) says it's collected over 1000 signatures from residents opposing lethal action to control the skunk population.
The controversial anti-skunk program started in July of 2013.
A report is expected to come back soon.
The program gave residents with a skunk problem the opportunity to call 311 and have city staff aid in trapping the skunk.
The animals were later euthanized.
APFA wants to see the Skunk Management Plan so it can provide comment and debate as soon as possible.
The Windsor-Essex Humane Society says the numbers aren't out yet
Although officials don't think many skunks were trapped because the distemper disease naturally killed off much of the skunk population.
