He is even a star on the BBC news this morning:
I just love this story.
A dozen firefighters help to free an overweight rat when it became stuck in a manhole cover in Germany.
See the daring rescue video and more pictures here:
I can hear some saying ‘it is a rat and should have been killed’.
I say ‘it is a sentient being that does not want to die any more than you do’.
Congratulations to the fire team who rescued the rat and helped it back to the sewer – and maybe a diet !
Any excuse for me to play ‘The Stranglers’:
