How many British firefighters does it take to save a wet squirrel? Hmm, let’s see, one, two, three, four, five and six … oh hang on seven, I didn’t see him standing behind the three friggin fire engines. Seems the Herts Fire and Rescue team take distressed rodents very seriously. When the entourage arrived they immediately put their collective heads together to work out a way to rescue the wet grey squirrel stranded in the centre of the town pond. Eventually they grabbed their ladders and made a makeshift bridge for the rodent to scamble across. Your welcome. Now that’s a $13,000 taxpayer bill right there.
