I was  just speaking from my part of the country with all the rain.

It amazes me that in my neck of the woods the skunks and coons are right up there with the coyote.   In our town there is a family of skunks that hang out behind the Kentucky Fried Chicken place and dine on leftovers at night. There is a family of raccoons (maybe was now due to rains) that lived in the sewer drains and would come out at night and go through the garbage cans in the street.

That is one explanation, but here there has been very, very little
rain.  I know what you mean and feeling totally helpless when flooding
comes to the dens.  I have watched entire prairie dog towns trying to
move their babies out---with the coyote families sitting and waiting. 
Nature will usually make it's own adjustments, IF we leave it alone. 
Too many times we are the cause of the animals either leaving an area of
being killed out :(   The ones that fascinate me the most are the
coyotes.  They have learned to live in spite of us!!  Gotta give them
credit for it :)  For the skunks we are their biggest enemy--except for
the owls.  That's why I can't figure out why I am not seeing them.
