PAINESVILLE, Ohio (WOIO) - The bravery of a Painesville police officer was on full display Monday when he faced a skunk in need of help.

Painesville Police Sgt. Miller removed a McDonald’s cup from the animal’s head as it was clearly in distress, according to a video shared by the department.

“While most people would turn and run from danger, Sgt. Miller only hesitated for a brief moment,” the department wrote in a Facebook post.

Sgt. Miller followed through with a “strategic plan” to remove the cup, and 19 News has confirmed the skunk did not spray.
