    Grapevine PD warns that you cannot tell if an animal has rabies by just looking at it. Some animals may act hostile when they have rabies and some may act timid. If you see a skunk, or any wild animal, do not approach it.
    The only way to determine if an animal has rabies is through lab tests.
    If you observe any animal acting strangely with the area, please contact Grapevine Animal Control at (817) 410-8127.
