Skunks don't see well but they do have a nose for food.  It is not unusual to run into skunks on Corralitas in the daylightDon't panic, don't make big moves.  Talk to them in soothing tones and they go about their business.  If you want to take photos, use the zoom on your camera.  Never feed wildlife.

City of Los Angeles Animal Services has info on their website on living with skunks and other wildlife.
