Firemen Save Obese Rat From Manhole

A rotund rat that got stuck while trying to squeeze out of a manhole cover has been saved by rescuers in Germany.

Firefighters responded after the female rodent was spotted in distress in Hochdorf-Assenheim, around 60 miles (96km) south of Frankfurt. 

Animal rescuer Michael Sehr told local media the rat “had a lot of winter flab and was stuck fast at her hip – there was no going forward or back”.

He said that even animals “that are hated by many deserve respect”.
