TV anchors punk'd by a skunk

OMAHA, Neb. -- Two Nebraska TV news anchors were punk'd by a skunk and his handler on live television.

The video has gone viral. The Omaha anchors were interviewing the animal handler when he squirted water on them from a strategically-placed water gun under the skunk. They thought it was the real thing.

One anchor ran away and asked producers to escort him out of the building before realizing it was a prank.
