Police Officer Frees Baby Skunk From Yogurt Container (Video)

| by Sean Kelly

Dash-cam video (below) captured a Michigan police officer rescuing a skunk from a yogurt container.

In the video, the officer makes his way to a Rochester, Michigan, neighborhood where a baby skunk had been spotted with its head stuck inside a yogurt container. The officer approaches the skunk and attempts to get close enough to yank the container from its head.

After a few attempts, the officer is finally able to grab hold of the container and free the skunk. He quickly jumps away to avoid getting sprayed, even though baby skunks are unable to spray like adults can.

“A police officer never knows what the day will bring,” Rochester Police wrote on its Facebook page. “Officer Taylor was called to the 400 block of W. Third St. this morning for a baby skunk with its head stuck in an empty yogurt container. Luckily baby skunks can't spray like adults! Well done Officer Taylor!”
