Must’ve been a slow news day

A paramedic officer in Peel region suited up in protective gear on Sunday morning — not for an outbreak situation — but for a rescue mission to save a skunk with a cup stuck on its head.

There are days where I question people’s priorities.

    To be fair, it was a skunk.

    A skunk with its head stuck in a jar. A skunk that’s probably already freaking out. A skunk that’s primed to spray anything it perceives as an attacker — including the person trying to help.

    Donning a hazmat suit is simply the smart thing to do.
