The New York State Department of Environmental Conservation responded to the call at the end of the late night shift. And at the time, he had no idea he was going to face one of the cutest rescue a while later. Unfortunately for the adorable little cat who caught her little head in a fast food cup, the anecdote behind it definitely says ‘oops’ to you and says it repeatedly. In a news release, the Department noted how Environmental Protection Officer Darcy Dougherty saw the “object in the middle of the road in the town of Ellery.”
In fact, she discovered a small animal trapped inside a plastic fast food drink. Equipping for all the opportunities, ECO Dougherty approached the cup carefully and found the kitten. The small creature was unable to lift its head off the ground and could not lift its head off the lid. The officer quickly removed the cat and the cat from the danger line and the oncoming traffic. The ECO pulled out the Dougherty Cup but the kitten needed to cut the lid off the head.
“This ordeal can be fatal to a kitten, but can be easily prevented by the responsible party if the cup is properly disposed of. Then the kitten is adopted,” said a press release from the New York State Department of Environmental Protection.
