LITTLE FALLS, Minn. (AP) – A 5-month-old baby is being treated for potential exposure to rabies after the child was bitten several times in the face by a skunk in Morrison County.

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.

Authorities say the dead skunk was taken to a local veterinary clinic where it will be tested for rabies. Results on those tests aren’t expected for several days.
