Police-officer-rescues-skunk-with-cup-stuck-over-its-head

OCTOBER 8

A  Massachusetts police department shared video of an officer coming to the rescue of a skunk with its head stuck inside a cup.

The Tewksbury Police Department said Officer Eric Hanley spotted the skunk running in circles in a parking lot with the McDonald's cup stuck over its head.

The department posted a video to Facebook showing Hanley chasing the skunk and making multiple attempts to pull the cup from the animal's head

without being sprayed by the animal's smelly defense mechanism.

"He was able to safely and quickly rescue the skunk from his predicament without injury.. or any unpleasant odors," the department said.

Police in a town in southern Germany near the Swiss border got a call from a woman complaining about an unwanted home invader.

The woman was airing out her home when a 25-centimetre Chinese mitten crab scuttled in from the terrace.

She managed to put a garbage can on top of it, and police scooped it into a container and took it to a local veterinarian.

The invasive species, which is native to Asia, is found in many rivers in Germany, and the woman's home isn't far from the Rhine.
