HULL, Mass.--A sergeant with the Hull, Massachusetts police department came upon a skunk with a cup on its head during an overnight shift.

Watch in the attached video as Sergeant Minelli helps the baby animal.

He didn't want to get too close but eventually pulled the cup away to free the skunk from its discomfort.

"You see all sorts of things on the midnight shift," Sgt. Minelli said.

He said his experience is a reminder to the public to properly dispose of their trash.

By the way, no officers were sprayed in the making of the video.
