Six rabid skunks have been found in El Paso County this summer, the first such discoveries since 1970.
The county Department of Health and Environment reported the three latest cases on Monday. Statewide, 26 rabid skunks have been reported so far this year. Only 18 total were reported in Colorado last year.
There have been no cases reported of people getting rabies from the infected skunks.
