So thinks Jim Hambleton of Guinda, who found not one but five in an abandoned well last week. Mr. Hambleton was look- ing for his stock when he heard a peculiar noise from the well and went over to investigate. He found the five skunks in the bottom. Apparently they had fallen in several days before. Mr. Hambleton hurried home and got his gun and shot the quintet. Several years ago sheep were trapped in the same fashion in the well.
