This video shows an officer going above and beyond the call of duty to rescue a baby skunk with a yogurt container stuck on his head.

An officer in Massachusetts was called to help a baby skunk who had gotten his head stuck in a yogurt container.

The skunk is shown running wildly in circles as the officer cautiously approaches, careful not to spook the animal.

Utilising all of his skills, the cop quickly removes the yogurt from the startled skunk's head and sprints for cover, but was already sprayed by the animal.

Fortunately for this officer, a baby skunk's pang isn't as cruel as an adult's.

The video was initially published on the Rochester Police Department Facebook page yesterday, where it has already amassed around 300,000 views.
