As reports of rabid animals rise, residents of one south side neighborhood are said to be skittish about strange acting skunks,
One reports a pesky skunk under the porch of an empty home while there have been reports of skunks listlessly walking down streets at midday and one instance of a skunk strolling through a group of youngsters splashing in the backyard sprinkler.
The residents don't know what to do and a call to the law resulted in the answer, 'they are supposed to act that way.'
The prospect of rabies, a fatal disease if untreated, has parents and pet owners worried and afraid.
