Final Thought: Helping animals in need

A Final Thought from NIGHTCAST Friday evening, about going above and beyond the call of duty.

Knowing all we do about skunks — would you do what Nate Jacobson did?

The Olmsted County Sheriff’s deputy found it within his heart to help this apparently confused critter, bringing it to a local animal rescue for proper care.

“You guys … I don’t know what to do, it’s so cute,” said Nate Jacobson.

The baby skunk — or kit as it’s called — is healthy and will be just fine.

The Wildlife Rehabilitation Center of Minnesota in Roseville is taking over care.
