Anyway.

The local animal rescue organization, Berufstierrettung Rhein Neckar, was unable to free her, so they called in the big guns.

Soon, a whole team of firefighters was on scene to free the poor little thing.

"She had a lot of winter flab and was stuck fast at her hip - there was no going forward or back," animal rescuer Michael Sehr told local media, according to BBC News.

The team was able to prop up the grate, get a rescue loop around the rat, and eventually free her from her predicament.

The rescue organization posted photos of the whole operation on Facebook. Some people were confused why so many people were there to save an animal normally considered a pest, but not Sehr.

"Even animals that are hated by many deserve respect," Sehr told media.

To top it all off, the girls who discovered the rat gave rescuers a drawing of it surrounded by hearts.
