Wichita city officials are warning pet owners that three rabid skunks were found in the eastern part of the city.
Officials announced Wednesday that the skunks came into contact with people’s pets during separate incidents. They say some dogs have been placed under home quarantines for observation, which is the state protocol for possible exposure to rabid animals.
Officials also encourage residents to vaccinate their animals, keep pets on a leash and stay away from wild animals.
