Virginia Beach Animal Control Rescue Greedy Rat

A rat in search of some food got more than he bargained for when he tried to eat from a bird feeder.

Virginia Beach Animal Control was called to a scene after a rat got his head stuck in a bird feeder. The responding officer was not able to get the rat’s head out of the feeder at the scene. The officer took the feeder, with the rat still stuck inside, back to a shelter.

The officer then soaped up the rat’s neck and his head popped right out!

The story is a testament to the compassion officers with Virginia Beach Animal Control have for ALL animals.
