MCTS driver stops to save skunk with yogurt cup stuck on head
MILWAUKEE (CBS 58) -- A Milwaukee County bus driver is being praised for going above and beyond the call of duty to save a skunk in distress.
Bob Ervin was driving back and forth along Route 14 the morning of July 10, MCTS says, when he saw a skunk with a yogurt container stuck on its head.
He knew he had to do something to help, so while stopped on his layover, he went to Walgreens and purchased an extended "grabber" tool.
He continued on his route, keeping an eye out for the animal, and found it wandering along the median near 32nd and Forest Home.
Bob stopped the bus and told his passenger he'd be right back.
He used the tool to remove the plastic cup from the skunk's head, and even took the cup with him so he could throw it away.
"Thank you, Bob, for your kindness and compassion," MCTS said. "Your actions -- in addition to the great work you do each day -- are true examples of MCTS Excellence."
