    Default Colorado skunk's head freed from peanut butter jar


    The skunk is seen lying on the pavement with a peanut butter jar on its head moments before the jar was pulled free by a wildlife officer.

    It was a sticky - and potentially stinky - rescue for a Colorado wildlife officer who pried a peanut butter jar off a skunk's head Saturday in Grand Junction.
    The officer got a call that the animal was disoriented in someone's front yard, its head stuck in a jar of peanut butter.
    State Wildlife spokesman Randy Hampton says the officer freed the skunk by tying a noose pole to the jar and pulling. The device is also called a choke stick and is a common tool used by animal control officers.
    The skunk was freed without injury after about 10 minutes of pulling and then ran away - without spraying anyone.
    Hampton says it likely got trapped while rooting through someone's trash.

    This reminds me of a cat one of my elderly Alzheimer's patients had that got a can stuck on her head. When I found her the poor thing was crying and flailing around like crazy trying to get it off. I did eventually get it off of her, but it took some effort because it was stuck on her head so tightly. To this day I don't know how she ever even got her head in that can to begin with.
