LFB animal rescue map

Cats stuck up trees are one thing, but the London Fire Brigade has also dealt with dogs on thin ice, ducklings in drains, a ‘horse in a precarious position’ and a rabbit trapped in a car engine. This map, put together by Emu Analytics, shows the 4,700-odd animal-related incidents that the LFB attended from 2009 to 2016. They’ve released the data to try and encourage people to call the RSPCA rather than dialling 999 – but it also gives an intriguing insight into wild London, showing deer and foxes sharing the city with house pets. It’s a jungle out there.

Here’s an interactive version of the map:
