Skunk sprays Mass. police officer who saved it

CAMBRIDGE, Mass. (CNN) – No good deed goes unpunished. One Massachusetts police officer discovered that the hard way.

On Monday morning, Cambridge Officer Dan McGinty went to help a skunk that had a yogurt container stuck on its head.

Video posted on the department’s Facebook page shows the officer getting sprayed as soon as he pulls the cup off the animal.

Both the skunk and McGinty are OK, but one of them needed a few showers.

Police made sure to give a shoutout to the maintenance crew who got stuck with the smelly task of de-skunking the officer’s vehicle.
