easy child daughter called me the other night and said her dog had just been bitten by a skunk in their yard. I told her to absolutely not let the dog in the house and call animal control. The animal control guy who showed up was apparently a complete idiot because he told them that skunks never get rabies and had them bring the dog in the house so he could examine her. He told them the skunk seemed fine, was probably just looking for food, so she thought everything was ok. Well, he took the skunk to have it tested and of course it was positive for rabies. The dog has had her shots but if they touched any area on her where the skunk's saliva was, there's a risk. Now the entire family needs rabies shots and my daughter is 4 months pregnant.
