Rabid skunk bites Minnesota toddler ‘inside of his mouth’

Published

A rabid skunk attacked a 5-month-old Minnesota boy on Thursday, biting him several times on the face and even “inside of his mouth,” according to local police.

The attack happened at a day care in Little Falls, Minn., according to NBC affiliate station KARE-TV. The woman who owns the daycare turned her back on the child for a moment as he reclined in a bouncy-chair when she suddenly heard him yelp, then turned around to see a skunk walking away.

“The child had what looked to be bites and/or scratches all around its face, and one inside of his mouth,” Morrison County Sheriff Michel Wetzel said. “He got bit a number of times. And it was an unusually large skunk, almost the size of probably a cocker spaniel.”

The daycare owner’s husband shot the skunk before it could get away, and lab results later showed the animal had rabies. At least five rabid skunks have been found in the county this year, KARE-TV noted.

"The former vice president has effectively been his party’s leader since his last challenger in the Democratic primary, Bernie Sanders, ended his campaign in April. But Biden pulled together the 1,991 delegates needed to become the nominee after seven states and the District of Columbia held presidential primaries Tuesday."
