A Hamden teen got the surprise of his life when he wakes to find a skunk in his bed.  Late last month Hamden’s Animal Control Division went to a home on West Easton Street after receiving a complaint. 

When emergency workers arrived they smelled the stench of a skunk that had already been removed from the home by the owners.  Apparently, the animal was inside of an outside trash can when the family moved the can inside where the skunk got out of the can and began to explore. 

The 13-year-old, was awakened by the skunk when the animal got onto his bed. 

No injuries were reported and the skunk was not injured in the process.

Emergency workers from the Hamden Fire Department was deployed on Saturday morning to take part in a multi-agency rescue operation for a pit bull mix. 

The dog has somehow found its way through West Rock Ridge State Park and became stranded on a cliff.  Since there was no way to reach the animal from the ground emergency workers had to use an anchor and haul system to bring retrieve the dog. 

Because of the rocky and unstable ledges works had to go above the animal and lower a rescue worker down to the dog where the firefighter gained the dogs trust and hauled it to safety.  After being rescued in a multi-hour rescue operation the dog was released on a trail that led it out of the park and on to safety. 

Other agencies included the Woodbridge Animal Control and the Woodbridge Fire Department.

I have good news for all.  Powerball’s jackpot has reached more than $510 million as of Thursday morning.  No winning ticket was sold for Wednesday night’s drawing. By Saturday night which is expected to be closer to $600 million by drawing time.  Cash value of the prize is estimated to be around $342.2 million. 

Numbers for Wednesday night drawing is 9,15,43,60 and the Powerball number is 4.

The odds of winning are really not that great with more than 44 states participating you have a kind of small 1 in 292.2 million.  It’s not very great, but remember a single ticket sold in Illinois on Friday with the Mega Millions Game whose jackpot worth $393 million. 

Good Luck New Haven County, it’s your turn.
