A news photographer who works the overnight shift in the Boston area made a bit of news as he went above and beyond the call of duty.

He came across a skunk with its head stuck in one of those small yogurt containers. The little guy couldn't see and was bound to get hit by a car.

The photographer put his camera on the tripod and sprung into action.

Armed with a towel, and fast feet, he pulled the cup off the skunk then took off -- quickly!

The skunk scampered away, and most important: the photographer did not get sprayed.
