MILWAUKEE, Wis. (CNN/WISN) - You've heard the old saying that it was that curiosity killed the cat. Well it turns out, it may apply to skunks too.
Middle school students in Milwaukee discovered a skunk with a plastic jar stuck on its head in a parking lot Wednesday morning.
After a few hours someone finally trapped the skunk by putting a garbage can over the animal.
A specialist from the Wisconsin Humane Society showed up to help the skunk, but when he removed the trash can it appears the animal had somehow freed itself from the jar and ran off.
