Utica Skunk Gets Head Stuck In Ice Cream Container
You can't blame a skunk for wanting a little ice cream - but maybe he should have used a spoon.
A young skunk went a little snack-happy at a CNY hotel, and ended up getting an ice cream cup stuck on it's head - prompting a call to the DEC.
On the morning of Aug. 24, ECO Jeff Hull received a call from the staff at the Hampton Inn in Utica stating they had a juvenile skunk with an ice cream cup stuck on its head running in circles in their parking lot. When he arrived, ECO Hull found exactly that.
The officer asked the large crowd of guests that had formed to step back as he placed a towel over the skunk and slowly removed the cup and plastic lid from its head. The skunk sprayed as soon as it was freed and ran off unharmed. (That seems a little ungrateful.)
No word on the flavor of ice cream involved. Although, on closer inspection - that looks like a McDonald's McFlurry cup, so that's definitely worth getting stuck in.
