Baby skunks find home at Iowa church


CLEAR LAKE (AP) -- Ray Faust says he just had to do something when baby skunks were found under the sidewalk of the Evangelical Free Church near Clear Lake.

The nine babies, called kits, were discovered last week by some children during Vacation Bible School.

Faust, of Clear Lake, says one has since died. Their mother, Faust says, was run over on the highway.

Faust has been taking care of the babies, bringing them bread, milk and worms.

Faust says the next time he spots them out of their hole, he plans to take them to the Iowa Department of Natural Resources or out to the country.

Conservation officer Matt Washburn says when someone finds baby animals in the wild, it's best to leave them alone and contact the agency.
