A squirrel in the western German city of Dortmund sparked a major rescue operation after it got stuck in a manhole cover.

The squirrel was discovered with its head poking through the drain cover in the city’s Hainalle on Thursday morning. Emergency services were alerted around 10.30am.

Firefighters presumed that the rodent had tried to escape from the sewer system through the manhole cover – but had unfortunately got into a sticky situation during the process.

Rescue teams didn’t manage to free the squirrel so they took the manhole cover – with the animal stuck inside – to a nearby vet.
