Curiosity isn’t only a problem for cats.

A kangaroo nosing around for a drink in Coffin Bay, Australia, found itself with a snoutful of trouble after getting its head stuck in a watering can.

Thankfully, the animal didn’t have to suffer through this embarrassing ordeal for long. Rob Smith and Steve Dew found the kangaroo shortly after it became stuck and went to work helping the furry prisoner escape the can’s clutches.

In the video, the two men attach a rope to the handle of the watering can and carefully work to subdue the kangaroo. Once they get the hopper to the ground, the rescuers are able to remove the can and send the kangaroo hopping off into the outback.
