Sept. 6 (UPI) -- Massachusetts police and the Animal Rescue League helped rescue a tiny gray kitten spotted wandering a highway tunnel.
"Today, this little guy (previously reported to be a gal) decided to play a little hide and seek in the Route 90 Connector Tunnel in Boston," police said Sunday. "Multiple calls were received about her walking around in the tunnel."
Sergeant Bob Dateo shut down traffic in the area down to allow the league's Associate Director of Law Enforcement Darleen Wood to scoop up the kitten.
"This little kitten looks like he has been through a lot, as has lost quite a bit of fur on his tail from some sort of burn," police said. "His prognosis is good however, and he will be up for adoption soon, when he is medically cleared."
The Animal Rescue League determined the "spunky" kitten is about 12 weeks old and plans to take community suggestions to name it.
The kitten has been vaccinated and is scheduled to be neutered as well as have a portion of its tail amputated.
