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

Police and a transit worker on Friday rescued two baby skunks that had strayed into a Bronx subway station.

Police Transit Chief Joseph Fox tweeted plaudits to the officers and worker for helping the animals and for “getting far closer than I would have.” He called the two critters “odor-able.”

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