Corsicana ISD Police
• School police officers and City of Corsicana Animal Control Officers responded to a report of a skunk at Corsicana High School on Monday morning. The skunk sprayed a few cars and officers before running away towards the baseball fields, where it was shot. Because it was morning, and the animal appeared scared, it was unlikely to be rabid. It did not come into contact with any humans or animals, according to Animal Shelter Manager MeLony Jordan.
“It ran away from the school towards the baseball field, because that’s a healthy sign they aren’t going to send it off (to be checked for rabies),” Jordan said. “A bad sign is when they aren’t afraid and try to come into the building or run towards humans or animals.”
