BIDDEFORD, Maine — It was a lucky day for one baby skunk in Biddeford recently.
A call was made to report that a few baby skunks were by the football field in Rotary Park, the Biddeford Police Department said in a Facebook post.
Flooding due to recent rain had forced a mother skunk to relocate her babies to a non-flooded area, but according to police, only one survived the wet and cold journey.
Animal Control Officer Hannah Duell, who deals with both domesticated and wild animals on a daily basis, helped the surviving baby skunk to safety.
"This little stinker was transported to Saco River Wildlife Center for rehabilitation," the Facebook post said.
