According to Smith, the trapper program has also been on the forefront of preventing the spread of rabies.
He said the agency receives funding to drop bait containing a vaccine for many wildlife animals and is currently in the research phase for forming an oral vaccine effective on skunks.
The process of leaving bait would be less effective for skunks than other animals, he noted, because skunks are often found in more populated areas. Smith said even an urban resident can benefit from the work trappers do, though.
"We're available to assist with any wildlife issues," he added.
