Beware Skunks on the Trail

Beware Skunks on the Trail

We received this alert from a trail user on the Brattleboro (Marina) end of the West River Trail:
“Thought you might like to know there is a family of skunks around the kiosk and parking area leading to the West River Trail. We were attacked by an ailing skunk (probably rabid), which sprayed one of our cars and trunk. Very hard to get invited anywhere these days.! These skunks might be rabid, as they move very slowly, and appear to be unhealthy. We called state authorities, and they promised to look into it. Be careful!”
