Skunks

For reasons you can probably guess, you do not want to be in the vicinity during skunk mating season. Though if everything goes well, there isn’t much to worry about from mating skunks, sometimes males will pursue a female who isn’t ready to get physical. In this case, the female will deter the male with a blast of her scent. That tends to get rid of any unwanted Pepe Le Pew behaviour.
