(Newser) – Rescuing skunks isn't in paramedic Justin Mausz's job description—but he decided he had to act when he arrived at his Toronto-area workplace Sunday morning and saw one in the parking lot with a plastic cup stuck on its head. He donned full Ebola protective gear to help the distressed animal, which had been running into the side of the paramedic services building, CTV reports. He later posted this video of the rescue. The Ebola gear kept his uniform safe, though the CBC reports that Mausz might have been OK without it. He says the skunk tried to spray him at one point, but he was able to stay out of the line of fire because the animal couldn't see him through the cup. (The NYPD saved two "odor-able" baby skunks from a subway station.)
