Orillia firefighters recently put their noses on the line when a smelly visitor showed up in need of help.
On Thursday morning, a skunk wandered up to Station 1 on Gill Street with a container stuck on its head.

It showed up at the right place.
Two firefighters worked together to free the distressed visitor, using a blanket to cover the skunk while another, very carefully, freed it from the container.
The skunk then wandered off before putting its heroes in a smelly situation.
