A skunk tested positive for rabies recently in Indian Hills on the north side of Parmalee Gulch between Hwy 285 and Hwy 74 and west of Mt. Falcon Park.

Remember to avoid any close contact with wildlife and look for the telltale signs of rabies, such as a fear of people, salivation and acting "drunk."
