Eh, they're just skunks. They wont do anything unless you go out of your way to pester them. They're pretty tolerant until something really gets in their business. They often warn first by stomping their feet. If that doesn't work, that's when they do a hand stand, raise their tail and nail you with their nasty foul stench!
Now, that was a mother and her babies. She might be more protective because of them than she would be if she didn't have babies. It's a good thing to be aware of them, but you don't have to panic and run. Stay calm and walk away.

Skunks are nature's pest control. They eat many of the creepy things you don't want in your houseor yard such as brown recluse spiders, black widow spiders, scorpions,wasps, bees, mice, moles, poisonous snakes, etc. The grasshoppers that are destroying your garden make a nice meal for skunks, solving your problem without using harmful pesticides. They are not likely to eat anything from your garden unless you happen to be growing some sort of yummy berries. Skunks eat mostly bugs, and small rodent type animals, more so than plant material. Having a skunk around is beneficial to the environment. They really are easy-going critters just minding their own business. They don't cause a lot of trouble the
way some other wildlife can.

once we had a mom skunk that had babies under the house and they come out at dusk and the only thing you can do is let them stay until it's time for the kids move out on there own and they never sprayed the dog because something eternal told him not to bother the skunk's. That was a good call on his part.
