Officer rescues skunk with head stuck in cup
YORK, MAINE - The York Police Department said officer David McKinnon discovered a skunk, walking around with its head stuck in a fast-food cup, during a nighttime patrol. In the video posted on the York Police Department's Facebook page, McKinnon carefully approached the skunk and, with a few pulls, finally pulled the cup off the critter's head.
The officer then braved the possible outcome--getting sprayed by the skunk, but something unexpected happened. Although the skunk raised its tail like it was about to hit the officer with its stinky spray, it walked off without dousing the officer.
The officer said the skunk escaped into the woods: "I never thought in a million years. Oh my God!"
