    If you get by whatever in the severage you will desperately try to get out there.
    That’s why animals (even cats) try to get out through a strom grate, even if it’s against their instinct to squeez their heads through those tiny holes. It’s just a desperate attempt to get out of the worser situation which is the severage.
