the trapped squirrel in germany

This cute little squirrel got his head stuck in a manhole cover in Isernhagen, Germany last week.  Policeman were alerted and worked to free him, but after trying to pull the squirrel out, and even removing the cover to do so, they were unable to do so.  Eventually they managed to use olive oil and push the squirrel's ears down before successfully freeing the obviously traumatized creature.  Unfortunately, after letting the squirrel go in a local garden, it was later found to be dead, probably due to the stress of it's ordeal.  Poor little bugger.  More about the rescue is here.
