Animal rescuers in Germany said a Chinese crab found wandering on a city street may have escaped from a restaurant kitchen.

The Animal Rescue Service in Dusseldorf said the mitten crab, a Chinese delicacy, was captured after being spotted wandering loose on a street in the Pempelfort area of the city.
