LITTLE FALLS, Minn. — Authorities say a skunk that bit a 5-month-old baby several times in the face in Morrison County has tested positive for rabies.

Sheriff Michel Wetzel says officials at Community Animal Hospital in Little Falls gave him that word Wednesday.

Wetzel says the baby's family has been advised and will get medical treatment for the infant.

Sheriff's officials say the baby was outside in a child seat with several other children when the skunk approached Tuesday at a residence near Little Falls.

The home owner retrieved a gun and shot and killed the skunk. The baby was treated at St. Gabriel's Hospital in Little Falls.
