Anyone for tea?
Fire officers in Gisborne, New Zealand, were called out to rescue a puppy that had its head stuck in a teapot. Senior station officer Mike Milne told the local radio station, they thought from the emergency call that they had to rescue a human baby. "So we were trying to figure out a way of getting it out on the way," he said. "We thought, oh well, at least it'll be able to breathe through the spout." It took no great technology to release the 10-week-old pitbull mastiff. “A sledgehammer and just a couple of taps and he was free in about a minute," Milne said.
The puppy suffered just a small cut on its nose and was left wagging its tail as its owners picked up the pieces. The puppy was renamed “Teapot”.
