(ANIMAL RESCUE/WILDLIFE/ANIMAL VIDEO) Earlier this week, Mike MacMillan did what he described as “the bravest thing in my life,” when he freed a skunk who had his head stuck in a Coke can.

“I couldn’t live with myself thinking of this guy dying a slow death with a can on his head…I assumed that I was going to get sprayed and I thought ‘Oh well, this is what I’m going to have to do today,'” he told the Huffington Post Canada.

Lucky for us, the kind man filmed the entire rescue mission. Take a look at his compassion in action! — Global Animal
