Some wise British men once said "I get by with a little help from my friends." Well, where were this prairie dog's friends when they left him struggling in a hole in the middle of a dirt road?
Fortunately for this Russian rodent, a couple came to his rescue after they noticed something awkwardly squirming in front of their car, which was barreling toward the helpless creature. The two travelers stopped their vehicle, grabbed a towel (because, ew, fleas) and hoisted the furry guy out of the ground.
Maybe lay off the grass, chubs.
