February is coming to a close which marks roughly the halfway point of winter, and this is probably the most fitting – well, actually pretty ill fitting – story to mark this time of year.
In the town of Bensheim, Germany, emergency services were called for a very important rescue as a rat found herself stuck inside a manhole. Which, honestly, is a story I relate to way more than I ‘d like.
The rat, animal rescuer Michael Sehr said, had “a lot of winter flab and was stuck fast at her hip, ‘ and ok, same.
The rescue efforts were fairly sizeable which lead a lot of people to ask the question, “was it worth it? ‘ To which Sehr told the media, “even animals that are hated by many deserve respect, ‘ and once again, I feel seen.
It took THREE FIREFIGHTERS to get this chunky girl out of the sewer grate, but the important thing is she made it out – and the pictures are adorable.
