Skunk with jar stuck on head wisely blames media

A skunk that got its head stuck in a peanut butter jar attracted plenty of press attention in Grand Junction over the weekend -- and it appears that the skunk didn't like it one bit.

The Colorado Division of Wildlife employee was tasked with removing the jar without getting a blast of pungent polecat juice blasted at him as a special thank-you.

Only the media around there were at risk."

Nonetheless, the reporters escaped unsprayed -- damn it. Look below to watch Channel 31's report:
