It sounds like the opening line of a joke…

How many firemen does it take to catch a skunk?

Apparently three, plus a bystander.

I’m serious.  I drove up to the parking lot at work this morning and a firetruck was blocking the entrance to the lot.  At 6 am there is nary a car in the lot, so naturally I wondered what the heck the firetruck, lights flashing, could possibly be doing.

Upon pulling over I saw behind the truck.  And, then I smelled the skunk.  I don’t know why, but the firemen were attempting to catch the skunk in a small box with a long pole and a tarp.

I drove on to a different lot, as I didn’t want to wait or smell.  I can only imagine it might have been rabid or injured and posed a threat to morning commuters which would be soon arriving.  But still, it’s not a sight you see every day.
