"Poaching" is defined differently in different places and at different times. Your area is supposed to be overrun with rabbits; in much of the US, the overpopulated coyotes keep the rabbits in check.
In Mississippi (where i live) it isn't legal to hunt very many animals with a light (raccoons are an exception). I have spotlighted rabbits in my youth; the last time, i stopped to lose some water and saw eyes a very few feet away from my feet; i shot the eyes, which turned out to belong to a skunk. I learned my lesson.
Different places, different rules, but there is nowhere that is a good place to shoot a skunk.
