BSO FIREFIGHTERS RESCUE ELUSIVE KITTEN

Broward Sheriff Fire Rescue Lt. John Micklos talks to reporters after rescuing a kitten that was trapped behind a wall in a Lauderdale Lakes home for about three days. The residents at 3419 NW 37 St. in Lauderdale Lakes called firefighters Monday afternoon after hearing meowing for about three days in the house, but didn’t know where it was coming from. The kitten apparently crawled into a void behind a wall in their home through the air conditioning system. When they arrived, firefighters had to remove an access panel behind the bathroom to see where the kitten was trapped. They tried various methods to get the kitten out including coaxing it out with a can of tuna.  Driver/Engineer Mark Maynard was finally able to get a grip on the feline and safely retrieved it. The kitten appeared to be otherwise healthy.
