I wish I could say this was an April Fools prank, but it really happened. A skunk had gotten its head stuck in a can of beer, and was found by animal control officers in Billerica, MA. The skunk was taken to a nearby vet. Vets plan on sedating the skunk before removing its head from the can. After a few days of recovery, the skunk will be returned to the wild. The skunk is expected to make a full recovery.
Billerica animal control had a little fun with the situation, posting a pic of the skunk and captioning it "This guy gives a new definition to the saying 'skunked beer.'"
I just want to say that this could have been avoided if people didn't litter. Please recycle your cans properly.
