EL PASO COUNTY, Colo. -- Two El Paso County Sheriff's deputies came across a smelly situation Thursday morning, but it had a sweet ending.

The deputies came across a skunk near a road that had a Pepsi can stuck on its head, the sheriff's office said on its Facebook page.

With video rolling from the dash cam, the deputies were able to remove the can and guide the black-and-white critter off the road.

The best part was both deputies kept their uniforms clean, the sheriff's office said.
