Skunk With Beer Can On Head Now Free, Released Into Wild

BILLERICA (CBS) - The skunk who had his head stuck in a beer can Thursday is fully recovered.

Billerica Animal Control tweeted the skunk's release back into the wild Saturday afternoon.

The skunk, who was found with a Bud Light can stuck on his head, was taken to the Tufts Wildlife Clinic in North Grafton on Thursday.

He was sedated so they could remove the can – and not get sprayed by the skunk. He was kept a couple of days for observation.
