Perhaps I lack empathy or find it difficult to commiserate with the misfortunes of others (wouldn’t be the first time I’ve been accused of such), but the story of the man in Karlsruhe, Germany who called police to rescue him from the unwelcome attentions of an orphaned baby squirrel had me howling with laughter. Apparently, shortly after the police arrived, the exhausted little tyke fell over and simply went to sleep, leaving our hero alone and victorious on the field of battle.
“O brave new world, That has such people in it!”
Don’t be afraid to read the story. There’s a Happy Ending. Little “Karl-Friedrich” is being well-cared for and will be the new police mascot.
