HAMDEN, Conn. (AP) _ A Connecticut boy got an unpleasant surprise when he awoke to find a skunk in his bed.
Hamden Police say the 13-year-old was awoken in his upstairs bedroom by the skunk, which had climbed into bed with him.

Police say the skunk apparently got into the home when it climbed through a hole in a trash can and a resident brought it inside. It’s not clear how the skunk found its way into the boy’s bed, but no one was happy about the outcome.

Hamden Animal Control Division responded to a call about at 6 a.m. on July 25. Police say an animal control officer arrived “to the poignant smell of skunk, which emanated throughout the house.”

The family got the animal out of the house on their own.

    Stupid people don’t know how to react. I’ve got video of a skunk rubbing against my boots…while I was wearing them. Keep calm and carry on.

    ….later, Ms Rosie O’Donnell was handcuffed and removed from the room, the traumatized child was given cookies and whiskey to ease his shock and horror.

    1. Mike, it said skunk, not skank.

    In an update to the story, it turns out it wasn’t a skunk, just his sister.

  9. nothing a quart of hydrogen peroxide, i/4 cup baking soda 1Tbsp of dish soap can’t cure.

    The skunk is just a poor homeless Democrat looking for a place to sleep.
