Police get all kinds of interesting calls when people ring to complain. But this may have to take the cake.
A man called police over a hamster. Yes, a Hamster. Northumbria police in the UK released 101 calls,
which is the emergency number there.
In the audio released you hear a man complaining his girlfriend was keeping his hamster hostage. He said they split up awhile ago, but she still has his hamster and is not giving it back.
Which is definitely not a reason to call an emergency number, but the man is clearly upset and says again she is not giving it back, and that she claims she looks after the hamster better than he does. He tells authorities, that's not true, and that it will end up like a fat little pig. He says he needs him back because he only has a couple years left in him and he loves his little hamster.
That's not the only "non-emergency" call, the Northumbria police shared.
There's the one about an overflowing toilet and the caller can't get anyone to come to his house to fix it.
And another about cheeseburgers where a woman was upset there was relish on her burger, which gets shut down quickly. She wanted the burger plan.
Just all in a days work for Police.
