US police actually responded to an emergency call about a ferret under a couch
‘Well, that’s a first,’ said the Illinois department on Twitter.
If there was ever proof needed that police go above and beyond to serve their citizens then how about this 911 call from Illinois?
Dixon Police described the unusual request for assistance on Twitter by simply saying: “Well, that’s a first…”

The accompanying picture showed the police log and call details: “Ferret in the house under the couch”.
The force later posted pictures of the rescued ferret with one of their officers and a call dispatcher.

For anyone doing a double-take on the whole situation, spare a thought for what happened when the call first came in.
Someone called the police for that? Please tell me the operator had to ask twice for clarification.— Valerie (@Val_Capone) May 10, 2018
And of course there were ferret/police crossover puns.
I’ve heard about ferreting out criminals, but this is ridiculous...— Rob (@akzukrider) May 10, 2018
