NEW YORK (AP) – There are plenty of smells in New York City’s subways. But skunks?
The New York Post said Saturday police and a transit worker rescued two baby skunks that had strayed into a Bronx subway station last weekend. They were taken to a veterinarian’s office to be examined.
Police Transit Bureau Chief Joseph Fox tweeted plaudits to the officers and worker for helping the animals and, in his words, “getting far closer than I would have.”
The city Parks Department notes that skunks are native to New York and “part of NYC wildlife.”
