OXFORD, OH - A skunk with a beer can stuck on its head had to be rescued near a fraternity house in southwestern Ohio.

Oxford police said a resident called them about the skunk's predicament on Sunday. Police found the animal banging around trying to get the can off and running into shrubs.

Skunks are known for the offensive spray they can emit when threatened. But Sgt. Jon Varley says an animal control officer was able to free the skunk without getting sprayed

The animal was then released.

Varley says police in the city about an hour's drive northwest of Cincinnati have received calls before about skunks and other wild animals. But he says this was the first one he knew of that had to be rescued from a beer can.
