Skunks have a bit of a bad reputation thanks to their over-powering scent. People are terrified of getting sprayed by these little black and white creatures, so they avoid these otherwise adorable animals at all costs. Despite any fear of being doused with Eau de Skunk, the Good Samaritans in this video stopped what they were doing to help a young skunk in need.

While driving in their car, the couple saw the skunk and noticed that he was in need of some assistance. He was wandering around with his head stuck in a cup. Quickly jumping to the rescue while his wife pleads for him to not get sprayed, the man approaches the little animal and removes the cup.

Or so he thought. It turns out there were two cups stuck on this poor little guy’s head. Luckily, this guy was willing to go back for the second cup, allowing the animal to run away, free from the garbage that would have either suffocated him or caused him to wander into the road.

Thank you, kind people! We are so happy you risked being sprayed to help out this thankful, little skunk.
