California – A skunk wandered into a California restaurant and bit a woman dining there on the foot, St. Mary’s animal control officers said after they shot and killed the animal.

The county health department reported that tests showed the skunk was rabid.

The staff at the Cheeseburger in Paradise restaurant put a box overtop of the skunk after the 3:30 p.m. incident, according to county officials, and an animal control officer used a catch pole to retrieve the skunk from under the box and take it to an area near the restaurant’s parking lot, where it was shot with a .22-caliber rifle.

Maryland’s department of mental health and hygiene alerted the county health department that an examination of the skunk’s brain tissue determined that it had rabies, a spokesperson for the health department said, and the injured restaurant customer was notified of those findings.  Full Article
