Bizarre Police Calls 2014
Several ‘ridiculous’ 999 calls were released by Greater Manchester Police, with one caller even dialing over a delayed pizza delivery.
A police time-waster dialed 999 because she was “scared” of the hedgehog in her garden. It’s one of four ridiculous ‘emergency’ calls released by Greater Manchester Police in a bid to reduce the demand on officers.
Asked whether the animal is dead, the Manchester Evening News reports, the caller answers it’s still alive.
“No, it’s not dead. It’s alive.”
The GMP call handler responded politely.
“Well that’s where hedgehogs live, in gardens. What do you want us to do about it? The hedgehogs are good for your garden. They kill your slugs. Right, well, it won’t harm you. It’s a natural inhabitant of the British Isles and they live in gardens, so there’s not a lot we can to about it I’m afraid.”
Apparently, the caller likes her slugs alive. Listen the hilarious audio below.
