Happy Friday! Here’s a Woodchuck Getting Saved From a Sewer Grate

–Twitter

It’s been a tough week. Let’s decompress for the weekend with video of this woodchuck being freed from a sewer gate in Danvers.

After a call from a concerned passerby, Danvers police freed the little woodchuck this morning, The Boston Globe reports. The sewer grating was functioning as a modern-day version of medieval stocks for the minuscule mammal.

This woodchuck is all of us, wiggling to set free and hoping some generous souls come by to lift us up. Be the woodchuck-freeing force you want to see in the world. And have a nice weekend.
