Chubby Rat Stuck In Sewer Cover Didn’t Expect Anyone To Help Him

There are some individuals who don’t care about one sewer rat in the world, but he doesn’t care.

It’s a good thing for this chubby metropolitan rodent that he discovered some nice individuals who think that his life is worth protecting.

When a concerned family called the Berufstierrettung Rhein Neckar on Sunday, they told them they’d found a fat rodent stuck in the hole of an old sewage drain cover.

Unfortunately, he had gained too much weight to fit through the aperture, and he was stuck in a fruitless attempt to free himself.

Rat’s desperation was obvious. The good news is that he wasn’t alone for long.

Volunteers from the rescue group arrived soon after, observing that the rat was healthy despite being stuck.

Andreas Steinbach, spokeswoman for Berufstierrettung Rhein Neckar, told The Dodo, “He was in extremely excellent shape.”

Rescuers, however, were unable to get the rat out of the hole because of its large size. He was just too tightly coiled up for his own good.

For this rodent rescue to be successful, you’ll need a lot of help.

“We couldn’t save the rat on our own,” Steinbach stated. As a result, we contacted the local volunteer fire departments.”

That’s exactly what happened.

To avoid harming the rat, firemen decided to use an alternative method.

In order to retrieve him, they raised the sewer cover and dragged him out through the bottom.

Was a collaborative effort, and an act of kindness for the sake of an unfortunate rodent.

Good thing that worked.

Fortunately, the rat was released back into the sewage system where he belongs.

“He made a quick look back at us, as if to say, ‘Thank you — and yes, I realize I need to go on a diet,’” Steinbach recalled.

On this particular day, the rodent wasn’t the only one that was grateful.

People who came to aid were met by the family’s two children, who’d called for help in saving the rat’s life and were happy to help.

A image they’d made to convey their gratitude to those who’d answered to their call was the flame that set the whole thing going.

But not for Steinbach and the other volunteers who altered things for the better.

According to Steinbach, “We don’t care what sort of animal needs help; we’re in animal rescue, not pest control.” There were negative responses from those who said rats were pests, but there were many more positive notes and gratitude from many others.

Goodness prevailed in this instance.
