When one thinks of firefighters rescuing cats that get stuck in trees, one usually imagines that they would make use of their extra-tall ladders. That was not the case in Okinawa yesterday, where firefighters were summoned to rescue a cat that had been stranded at the top of a 15-meter tree for four days.
The firefighters first attached ropes to the tree and tugged them back and forth to shake the cat out of the tree. When this failed, they whipped out a chainsaw and cut down the tree:
The top of the tree came tumbling down with the poor cat still clinging to its branches. But don’t worry, children, the cat was “safe” (and has since been hospitalized for a broken leg).
