Animals getting their heads stuck inside of things is certainly nothing new, nor is it limited to any one species of animal. Recently, a skunk got itself into a pretty stinky situation when it lodged its head inside a yogurt container.

Fortunately, a savior appeared in the form of YouTube user Janiva Corso’s father.

The man slowly approached the animal from behind—cautiously, of course. After all, he didn’t want his stint as Good Samaritan to be thwarted by the skunk’s famous stink glands, especially after it had been consuming old yogurt. 

With one swift move, he grabbed the container and pulled it off. Before you can say “Pepe Le Pew,” the skunk bolted away.
