It can’t bite, but that isn’t the end that worries me

skunk with head in jar

Found wandering in the parking lot of a police station in Michigan.

A police officer “rescued” Monsieur le Pew, sort of. It sounds like he did a half-assed job of it.

    ahhh, so a broken shard`of sharp glass hanging right around it’s neck is not going to affect it’s life in any way then?

    Don’t the Americans have nice vets who come out, shoot wild animals with tranq’s and sort out such situations properly?

    I think the line “do anything like skunks do” tends to sum up his lack of empathy. Wonder how he is with human beings in the same style of situation…

    What stuck me is how pleased with himself the officer was. Evidently, he thinks he did a fine thing for the skunk. Doesn’t seem to have occured to him that, having encircled the poor animal’s neck with jagged glass, he’s as good as killed it. Dope.

    This is a kin to pulling the wings off flies. I would rather he had shot the skunk

    Things wrong with this plan.

    1. if the pellet can break the glass it can kill the skunk
    2. how much fun would it be to have a glass jar smashed on your head while your wearing it
    3. I wonder if the skunk has glass in it’s eyes or ears now

    I just thought a net a hasmat suit and a brain might have solved this better than the obvious John Wayne approach chosen.

    But Bill … the poor wittle police officer was scareded of the skunk!

    How else to explain the worse-than-useless method he employed?
