After Days of Drama, Good Samaritans Save Trapped Kitten in Waconia Sewer
A group of kind people recently pitched in to save a small kitten that was trapped in a sewer drain in downtown Waconia.
According to FOX9 News, people first noticed the kitten’s meows coming from a sewer drain the weekend of Nov. 4., and after repeated efforts over the next few days, the kitten was finally saved Nov. 8.
Two rescuers — Caroline Dahle and Char Gruber — arrived Tuesday morning and located the kitten by using a drain camera, and were able to get their hands down the drain far enough to pet her, but not to rescue her, the report said.
Later, employees from Sullivan Sewer Services came from Belle Plaine and employees determined how much water would be needed to make the kitten float toward the larger drain and began pouring water into the pipe she was is, the report said. It worked, and the kitten was rescued.
