Rabid Skunk Numbers High in Cheyenne Area

A state vet says the Cheyenne area has seen an unusual amount of rabid skunks. 

Animal control authorities say eight rabid skunks now have been found since late last year. 

The most recent was discovered last week near Pine Bluffs. 

The Cheyenne Animal Shelter says the skunks carry a strain of Rabies from Colorado. 

Authorities suggest people with horses and cattle in the area should consider vaccinations.
