Guinea pig police mascot is here to melt hearts and teach you about road safety
You’re already used to the fuzz telling you about road safety, but what about a ball of fuzz?
We’re certainly a fan of what appears to be New Zealand Police’s newest mascot, a guinea pig named Constable Elliot, who is also dressed as a cop.
Just look at it.
Constable Elliot turns out to be not a well-seasoned member of the force, but rather a family pet of one of the members of New Zealand Police’s media team.
“According to his human ‘mum’ he’s pampered, and loves going on trips to explore new food supplies, which is what he was doing yesterday,” according to a comment by NZ Police on its Facebook page.
“He loves being patted and carried and can spend a while being cuddled on laps. We take care of all our animals, don’t you worry.”
