Officers with the Berlin Police, in Germany, received an emergency call this week from a local hospital, but it was far from a routine request for assistance. Turns out, patients there had spotted a little hamster, apparently lost or abandoned, cowering alone in a nearby bush at night. They wanted to get him the help he needed.
Rather consider the call a waste of their time, cops on duty were more than happy to give the hamster a hand — and a distinguished new title.
“A police patrol found him and named him spontaneously Sir Henry,” a spokesperson for the Berlin Police told The Dodo. “They put him in an empty box (usually made for clinic-gloves) and took him to the police station.”
