Portland police officers were called to the West End early Tuesday morning to help out a skunk that found itself in quite the predicament.

The skunk’s head was stuck inside an aluminum can and it was wandering around the neighborhood. An officer is seen in the video throwing a towel over the skunk. He successfully removed the can and the skunk scurried off.

Early this morning, officers were sent to the west-end to help out a skunk—whose head was stuck inside of an aluminum can. Officers were able to remove the can and the skunk scurried off happily. Thanks @traciereed for the ?
