Would you risk rescuing a skunk from your pool? Have you ever been sprayed by a skunk? Not fun kids.

Ladies and Gentleman, the most compassionate man ever: According to, a local Merrimack man sprung to the rescue when he noticed a cute baby skunk failing in his backyard pool.

He had no idea how long the poor critter was in there, but what a champ.

According to's video it looks like he used a very long pole.  Smart choice.

No word on if he was sprayed after the rescue, but it looks like the baby skunk has survived his jump in the deep end of the pool.

Let’s hope he moves on his way and does not return.

My wife was skunked as a child and it gives her shivers to see them.

Glad things turned out okay and I bet that man has some good Karma coming his way.
