WASHINGTON TOWNSHIP, NJ (Warren County) – A Washington Township police officer came to the rescue of a groundhog that had a plastic jar stuck over its head.
The officer this week responded to the area of Meadow Breeze Lane for an animal call. The officers were a bit surprised to find a groundhog with a jar stuck on its head, police said.
Officer Grawehr was able to use some shears to cut the jar and remove it without harming the groundhog, police said.
“Once the animal was freed, Officer Grawehr directed him to the Marine Corps Recruiting Center in Washington New Jersey since he all ready proved that his head could fit in a jar,” police said.
“All kidding aside, we have a great respect for all of our service members and anyone interested in a becoming a marine should contact the Marine Corps Recruiting Center in Washington New Jersey for further information. Semper Fi!,” police said.
Last week, Washington Township police rescued a dog after she got stuck in a pond in the area of Brass Castle road and Jonestown Road.
