Third Rabid Skunk Found in College Station

By  | 

For the third time in three weeks, a rabid skunk has turned up in the same general area in College Station. Authorities received word Thursday that one found in the Emerald Forest subdivision, near the area of Spring Creek and Rolling Rock, has tested positive for rabies.

Two weeks ago, a rabid skunk was captured in the Raintree subdivision. A week earlier, the first infected skunk was found, this one also in Raintree.

Authorities advise watching for signs of rabies which include nocturnal animals out during the day, and animals having difficulty eating or moving.
