Michigan police officer helps skunk with yogurt container stuck on head

Police officers deal with all kinds of problems. 

On Sunday, a Michigan police officer had to deal with a sticky situation that nearly became a stinky situation. 

Officer Merlin Taylor was in his police cruiser when he rolled up to a hungry skunk with a yogurt container stuck on its head. 

The skunk was running around in circles without a way to remove the container. 

The officer was a litter jittery; when the skunk accidentally stepped on the officer’s foot, he jumped. 

Officer Taylor went back and removed the container from the skunk’s head. 

He then ran away because he thought the skunk was going to spray him. 

This is not the first time Tayler has helped an officer in need. He is also credited with helping baby ducks that were caught in a storm drain.
