Oh My: Disoriented Skunk, Teen Stuck in Swing

We report unusual police items from the MetroWest area.

I thought yogurt was supposed to be healthy?

Northborough police received a call this week for a . Police were also advised that the animal was deceased; the DPW was called to remove it. Presumably the skunk was running around with the yogurt container before it died. If it was dead and running, well...we have to write a bigger story.

These two gems happened within 35 minutes of each other.

It's all fun and games until someone gets stuck in a swing.

Once removed, she was taken to the hospital as a precaution.

This happened to us with a racoon who got into the trash bucket and got his head stuck in a container that was empty but was for sour cream.....good grief, but he shook it off somehow very violently, we saw it thru the window, what a racket when we put on the flood lights.

Scary Karen! I'm not sure what I'd do if I saw that! As an animal person, I'd want to help, but I think I'd be afraid of any aggression!

I love animals, too, but in this case, they are wild, and we just watched from the window. They use their paws well to get out of it and it's amazing how they shake around and all. He was on his way. They don't like the lights when you put them on either, they tend to want to leave at that point. Thanks !
