Thankfully for one coyote with a jar stuck on its head, some kind folks came to the rescue to get it out of a situation that not only looked ridiculous, but totally stunk.
The scene played out over the course of ten days between Placer and El Dorado counties in California, according to Fox40. Finally on Monday, volunteers succeeded.
With no risk of being bitten because of the jar, they were able to sneak up on the young female and trap it with nets and a crate. Once she was transported to a veterinary hospital, the plastic jar was cut off, which led to another discovery.
"We had the right people, the right equipment and the right situation so that we could capture her," Greg Grimm, of Gold Country Wildlife Rescue, told Fox40.
Rescuers said based on the stench that came out of the jar, it had recently been sprayed by a skunk.
So really, the next time you're in an elevator, just remember that it could be worse.
For now, the female coyote is in stable condition and will be released back into the wild when she's strong enough.
