(WBBM NEWSRADIO) -- Move along, nothing to see here -- except a police officer helping out a skunk that found itself in a jam.

Video posted by the Aurora Police Department on Thursday shows an encounter between two cops -- Officer Jonathan Olsen and Lt. Seven Stemmet -- and a skunk with its head stuck in a fast-food tumbler.

The night footage shows a dimly lit intersection. One of the officers gingerly approaches the distressed animal and quickly plucks the container from the skunk's head. The animal retreats into the darkness, rather than letting loose with a foul-smelling spray.

"Nice," the officer tells his comrade.
