City scents: 2 baby skunks found in NYC subway station

There are plenty of smells in New York City's subways. But skunks?

The New York Post ( ) said Saturday police and a transit worker rescued two baby skunks that had strayed into a Bronx subway station last weekend. They were taken to a veterinarian's office to be examined.

Police Transit Bureau Chief Joseph Fox tweeted plaudits to the officers and worker for helping the animals and, in his words, "getting far closer than I would have."

The city Parks Department notes that skunks are native to New York and "part of NYC wildlife."
