Maine Police Officer Risks Spray To Save A Skunk Caught In A Cup
York, Maine police officer David McKinnon doesn’t stink!
Officer McKinnon braved one of the most horrendous substances known to man -- skunk spray -- to save one of the animals from a discarded cup.
The video, shared by WCSH 6, shows the officer gingerly removing the cup from the head of a distressed skunk; then, quickly backing away from the animal once it was free.
As a result of this fine police work, yet another skunk is free to terrorize the residents of southern Maine. (Kidding!)
Great work, officer! Is there a bravery commendation that comes with getting up close and personal with a skunk? I wouldn’t have dared!
