Skunk gets its head stuck in Bud Light beer can

A skunk somehow got its head stuck in a beer can in Massachusetts. The brand of the beer—Bud Light—is apparently just a coincidence.

Animal control officers rescued the wild animal and got him help on Wednesday.

"This guy gives a new definition to the saying 'skunked beer,'" Town of Billerica Animal Control tweeted this week. "Amazing it could fit its head in such a small opening."

Tufts Wildlife Clinic in North Grafton took in the skunk. Medical staff apparently sedated the critter, removed the can, and are keeping an eye on him for a few days, authorities said.

No word if the veterinarians have introduced the skunk to Sam Adams.

In all seriousness, though, don't litter. Please discard your empty cans and other trash properly.
