MARFA - It may be skunks gone crazy in Marfa.

The Big Bend Sentinel reports the City's Animal Control has caught three rabid skunks since May and they fear more may be on the loose.

The skunks were apparently seen walking through neighborhoods during the afternoon, which isn't normal.

The disease even prompted one to chase a dog.

Now Animal Control wants folks to look out for skunks in the afternoon because they could be rabid.

However, they say if you see one in the evening, not to worry, it's normal.

Most skunks won't bother you if you don't bother it.
