Skunk saved and nobody got sprayed 臭鼬獲救且沒有人被臭氣噴到

The skunk walks on a sidewalk in Carrollton, US, Oct. 4, 2007. 這隻臭鼬十月四日行走在美國卡羅頓市的人行道上


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)
