A new video showing an officer from the Rochester Police Department rescuing a baby skunk has received nationwide attention. 👮
It was a regular Sunday for Officer Merlin Taylor when he got word that an animal was in distress.
He arrived on the scene to discover an infant skunk that had gotten its head stuck in a yogurt container.
Taylor got out of his vehicle and approached with caution...
After several attempts he successfully grabbed the plastic container.
Then got the fuck out of there.
“Luckily it was a young enough skunk that it couldn’t spray,” fellow officer, Sgt. Mark Lyon, told the Detroit News.
