NEW YORK (WCBS 880) - It’s a sight many New Yorkers don’t expect to see, especially Amy, who was walking on Amsterdam Avenue near 181st Street in Washington Heights.

“I just looked towards that way and saw a skunk,” Amy told WCBS 880 reporter Monica Miller.

The New York Times is reporting that the smelly creatures are moving into northern Manhattan and the Bronx.

Amy said, “I’ve never seen nothing like that before.”

They’ve been reported marking their territory in places like Co-op City, Inwood, and as far south as Riverside Park.
