Germany: ‘Fat Rat’ Is Rescued By Daring Effort of 12 Firefighters. Returned to Sewer, and Maybe A Diet !!




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 !

Regards Mark


Any excuse for me to play ‘The Stranglers’:
