One of the fascinating ideas that I have heard is that they hunt & kill skunks in order to remove the scent gland to use as a deterrent. 


This would explain some of the classic skunky smell which seems to vary and would work quite well to get predators/man to steer clear of the young.


Tasty snack + olfactory camouflage = win.
