There are about a dozen dead skunks on the side of the road between Hodgenville and Buffalo. What’s going on? Will they be tested for rabies?
Skunks are suffering from rabies of love.
According to the University of Kentucky Extension Service, February is mating season for skunks, so they are on the move more than usual.
Skunks are nocturnal, nomadic and solitary, except during mating season when the males apparently lose all sense of timing and direction and blunder into the roadway.
If your vehicle gets skunked, we are sorry.
