A group of crayfish spared themselves from being eaten by escaping from a restaurant.
German police in Stuttgart were called in when the crayfish escaped from an Asian restaurant.
The escape attempt was noticed by a pedestrian who spotted the crayfish scuttling down the street and notified authorities.
Apparently the crayfish had squeezed through gaps in the grating at the top of the tanks and escaped out the front door reports.
At least they were smart enough to get out rather than waiting for things to get hot and final. And they stuck together, like real runaways on an underground railroad.
