I THOUGHT THE SAME THING I SWEAR but then I thought maybe rats get scared so it’s better to just let them do the job I don’t know man I’m just glad the mamma rat could save her kids— Harleen Kaur (@KaurazyGirl) July 21, 2020
The effort is literally par excellence but I am afraid, she might not have been able to save all of them. Seems still some of them were trapped and rain water would have killed them. Infact those who had been pulled might not have made it but 100% marks for effort. A true mother— CA. Gourav Sharma (@CA_gouravsharma) July 21, 2020
