Animal Control was called to rescue a skunk whose head was stuck in a yogurt container in front of Bliss Hall on Thursday, Sept. 15.

Campus Police contacted Animal Control at about 8:30 a.m. to help the animal, according to Michelle Ordini, program assistant in the English Department.

Ordini said Animal Control removed the yogurt cup from the skunk before capturing it to be tested for rabies and released.

“It was quite the entertainment, as no one wanted to get too close to help for fear of getting sprayed,” Ordini said. “It just shows the importance of not littering on campus.”
