A multi-agency rescue operation has taken place in the town of Bensheim in Germany after a tubby rat became stuck in a manhole cover.

The rat, still plump with winterspeck – which translates literally as winter bacon and refers to extra pounds piled on in the colder months – became stuck after it tried to squeeze through a small gap in the sewer cover.

The Auerbach volunteer fire brigade was called in, as was the Rhein Neckar animal rescue team, and together a team of about eight rescuers was able to raise the cover and pull the rat free.

The fire brigade said the rat escaped unhurt.

After the successful rescue, two young girls presented the animal rescue team with a gift to say thank you – a drawing of a rat surrounded by love hearts.

Today was a weird day for animal news. Between the fat rat, that dead whale in the rainforest, and this.

"Even animals that are hated by many people deserve respect,” he said.

I was actually surprised they didn't kill it as well, tbh.

It would not be correct to kill it in that situation.

It is the role of the fire service to save animals in distress.
It is the role of the public heath department to carry out pest control.

I'm channeling my inner German.
