CS Reports Rabid Skunk Found Near Central Park

By  | 

For the second time in as many months, authorities in the Twin Cities have come across a rabid skunk.

The latest case was tracked down near College Station's Central Park, in the 800 block of Krenek Tap Road. The animal was originally captured back on May 23, and test results that came back three days later showed the skunk to be positive for rabies.

Officials say in all, 17 animals in Brazos County have tested positive for the deadly virus, 12 of which have been skunks.

Bryan authorities reported finding a rabid skunk in April in the Wheeler Ridge area.

You're asked to keep rabies vaccinations on your pets up to date, and not let your pets roam where they could come in contact with rabid animals.
