BENSHEIM, Germany (WTVO) – A whole team of firefighters were called in to rescue a chubby rat stuck halfway out of a manhole cover in Germany.
“She had a lot of winter flab and was stuck fast at her hip – there was no going forward or back,” animal rescuer Michael Sehr told local media.
Volunteer firefighters were called out Sunday afternoon for what the local fire department said was an “animal rescue, small animal” call.
Eventually, the manhole cover was lifted and the rotund rodent was popped free and released back into the sewer.
But not before the whole incident was captured on video.
