Check out this adorable video of a couple who stopped their car to rescue a prairie dog that was having a hard time squeezing out of a tunnel in the road.

I lived in Colorado for a stretch of time and while I saw a lot of prairie dogs on the side of the road, I never saw any that were too fat to escape from their tunnels. (Well, with the exception of a few chubby dogs living the easy life at the zoo.)

Kudos to anyone who helps out an animal bro in need!
