article imageCop uses BB gun to save 'jarhead' skunk

By RobotGod     Oct 5, 2007 in World
He's one lucky skunk. Officer James Kellett said a skunk whose head was stuck in an empty salad dressing jar wandered into the police station's parking lot Thursday in Carrollton Township, near Saginaw and about 80 miles north of Detroit.
Yahoo reports that Kellett wanted to serve and protect the white-striped weasel, but wasn't interested in any resistance — spray or otherwise.
So what is an officer to do? He grabbed a BB gun used in hunters' safety courses and shot at the jar from about 40 feet.
The shots cracked and shattered the jar, leaving a glass collar around the skunk's neck. With its head free, the skunk ran off.
"I didn't want to use deadly force, and it is a residential area," Kellett told The Saginaw News. "The way he was when he took off, he was able to eat, breathe and spray — and do anything else skunks like to do."
But I worry that he might cut his neck thanks to his new collar. If that's the case, what was the point?
Oh well, at least he has a chance now. The stinker.
The makers of T. Marzetti's salad dressing are sending the officer coupons good for free dressing as a reward.
