PARSIPPANY, N.J., Aug. 30 (UPI) -- Authorities in New Jersey said two police officers and an animal control officer were able rescue a skunk with its head stuck in a jar without getting sprayed.

Parsippany police Officers Alfred Keiser and Michael Ruggier responded to a report of a wild animal with its head stuck in a jar around 6:13 p.m. EDT Sunday, and were unable to pull the mason-style jar off the skunk's head, the Parsippany (N.J.) Daily Record reported Friday.

An animal control officer covered the skunk's body with a trashcan to prevent it from spraying while the police officers used an expandable baton to break the jar.

The skunk walked away unharmed and the officers were able to walk away from the incident without becoming victims of the animal's signature stench.
