Sticky situation for stuck skunk


A skunk in Oklahoma, USA, was rescued by a good samaritan and a 'skunk whisperer' after it got its head stuck in a jar of peanut butter.

Teresa Vick spotted the stuck skunk while delivering papers and called for help.

Ned Bruha, 'Skunk Whisperer', used a small amount of chloroform to slow the animal down and trap him, before he was able to pull the jar off without the skunk being injured or spraying its foul scent.
