Cat rescued after stranded for three days atop Nevada utility pole

Jan. 26 (UPI) -- Animal rescuers in the Las Vegas area said a cat was safely brought back down to earth after being stranded for three days atop a utility pole.

The Las Vegas Valley Humane Society said a member of the public reported a cat atop a utility pole appeared unable to climb down and had been stuck in the same spot for at least three days.


The group initially put a call out for help on social media, requesting anyone with the means to help the feline get in touch via a hotline.

The humane society later posted an update saying the cat had been successfully rescued.

"Thank you to the individuals who reached out to help rescue and to the community for their sincere concerns," the group said.
