The Hilarious Reason Animal Welfare Was Called On A Croissant

It's not everyday we face an animal emergency, but when we do, the situation feels dire. Onlookers in Krakow didn't know what to think when they saw a mysterious animal stuck in a tree. According to BBC, the mystery creature that menacingly sat stationary in a residential area of the city terrified those that questioned how this creature got there. One resident told authorities that people shut their windows, fearing the animal would try to enter their homes, with one individual claiming this cryptid might be an iguana or a bird of prey.

When authorities arrived at the scene, they took the emergency call very seriously. Reports indicated that the animal had sat in the tree for two days, and had yet to move, possibly indicating injury. Upon scaling the tree, emergency workers found that the creature was in fact a croissant that someone most likely threw out the window, or an offering to the birds. The Krakow Animal Welfare Society issued a statement saying that the request to aid the croissant came from a place of genuine concern and was not a prank. They responded to the incident, fearing that an iguana owner abandoned their reptile and came to potentially rescue the stranded pet.

A response with the utmost care

The Krakow Animal Welfare Society handled the situation with the highest level of professionalism and care. According to Newsweek, a spokesperson for the organization commented on the croissant rescue, stating that they take every animal-in-need situation seriously, as pet owners frequently abandon their animals in some terrible locations. The responder in this particular scenario feared the worst as they scaled the tree, as the stuck animal that turned out to later be a croissant lacked limbs or a head, and looked like a monster. 

Even if the animal in question might have ended up to be a French pastry, the rescuers recommend always calling in any worrying situation involving animals. According to Newsweek, the welfare society stated that we can always err on the side of caution when it comes to animals in need. Even if the situation ends up as a prank or a simple dessert in a tree, we can never be too careful when it comes to protecting the pets and wildlife around us.
