Rescue Workers In Germany Come To The Aid Of A Giant Rat


Good morning. I'm Rachel Martin. Kitten stuck up a tree - there's always a hero ready to save the day. But this weekend in Germany, rescue workers were summoned to the aid of a giant rat. And these first responders were really committed because they were freeing this particularly heavy rodent from a sewer manhole, where she had gotten stuck. It took a whole team of firefighters to free the poor critter. One member of the rescue team said, quote, "even animals that are hated by many deserve respect."
