February brings a special smell to the air as it's skunk mating season. 

Why did the skunk cross the road? He didn't. He got smacked halfway across. Let the smelly road-kill commence.

We've all done something we regret when we thought we were in love. For the skunk, it's crossing a busy street to try to catch a mate.

According to Texas Parks & Wildlife, February is the beginning of breeding season, so the normally shy creatures get a little "randy" and bold venturing over area's they shouldn't be in.

Robert Dowler, a biologist with Angelo State University, said there are more roadkill skunks in February and March than any other time of the year. It could make for a stinky ride home from work.
