The skunk went on to spray the Britton's living room and dining room, including the walls and curtains. An exterminator was called and the skunk was finally captured after about an hour, Denver7 reported.
By then, the damage had been done. The Brittons were told by their insurance company that the damages would not be covered by their policy. The cleaning service they hired was unable to save the furniture, and told the family that the skunk's oily discharge had likely penetrated the home's hardwood floors and drywall.
