Last week, a skunk bit a visitor on the foot at Six Flags New England in Agawam, Massachusetts. That’s scary enough. Skunks don’t usually run around chomping on people, though, so the animal was captured, euthanized, and tested for rabies. It tested positive. Now officials want the public to know that if a skunk bit them while they were at the park, to contact their health care provider. [CBS Boston]
