A skunk got its head stuck in a salad dressing jar. But he was saved by a Michigan police officer earlier this month.
The skunk, head in jar, wandered into a police station parking lot. It was spotted by Officer James Kellett.
Kellett wanted to help, but was not interested in being sprayed by the skunk. So he grabbed a pellet gun and shot at the jar from a safe distance.
The shots cracked and shattered the jar. The skunk was left with a glass collar around its neck. With its head free, the skunk ran off.
"I didn't want to use deadly force, and it is a residential area," Kellett said.
"The way he was when he took off, he was able to eat, breathe and spray -- and do anything else skunks like to do."(Staff Writer, with AFP)
