Excellent question.  MOST skunks prefer fresh veggies almost to the exclusion 
of everything else.  In the Winter, when produce isn't at it's peak, they 
will USUALLY begrudgingly accept lightly cooked (steamed seems preferable to 
them) frozen veggies with a touch of chicken or fish mixed in or a drop of EVOO or 
something similar.  

During the growing season, wild skunks seem to prefer raiding a producing 
vegetable garden or under fruiting trees over attempting to raid chicken houses, 
etc.  They are TRULY misclassified as Carnivores, when in fact, they are 
Omnivores with a decided leaning toward Herbivore.
