Homeless man reunited with pet rat after police search for ‘stolen’ rodent
Chris and Lucy are back together after the rat was taken earlier this month.
A homeless man who thought his pet rat had been stolen has been reunited with the rodent thanks to a little help from the police.
Chris, 59, and Lucy are a familiar sight to many people in Sydney, Australia.
Officers released CCTV images of a woman who appeared to have taken the rat on April 6 when Chris went to use a public toilet, leaving Lucy outside.
Thanks to the publicity from the police’s initial Facebook post they were able to retrieve Lucy and reunite her with her grateful owner on Thursday.
He added: “This feels wonderful. Thank you very much everybody.”
