Rabid Skunk Bites Dog

A rabid skunk has caused quite a stink in Smith County. The skunk got into the home of a family living in the Cumberland Ridge subdivision at Lake Palestine... thanks to the family dog, who brought the skunk inside. Authorities say the skunk bit the dog, so they killed the skunk, and it turns out, it tested positive yesterday for rabies. Officers say the dog remains in quarantine as a precaution. No one else was hurt, although the family had to get used to the smell the skunk brought into the house.
