Kitten, stuck in hole, draws multi-agency rescue team in El Cajon
Police officers, firefighters and animal rescue workers were staring down a hole in the ground. Several feet below, a scared kitten, trapped in some electrical plastic pipe, was meowing frantically.
How it got down there was a mystery. Who might own the kitten was also unknown.
After several hours and several strategies, the animal was finally dislodged. Next stop: the El Cajon animal shelter for an examination and possible adoption.
