A day in the life of an ACO…..

Animal Control Officer Duncan responded to a call of a cat stuck in concrete under a house. ACO Duncan worked for several hours trying to free the cat, whose head was stuck in a hole in the concrete. With the help of a crew from Canon City Public Works and their handy-hand-held jackhammer-the cat was freed and took off towards home. JOB WELL DONE!#CCPublicWorksRocks#ADayInTheLifeOfAnimalControl#Meow

CAÑON CITY – The Cañon City Police Department helped rescue a cat that was trapped in a small concrete hole beneath a home Thursday afternoon.

The little guy’s head got stuck in a small hole in the concrete in a crawlspace. With the help of a crew from Cañon City Public Works, they were able to jackhammer away some of the concrete around the cat, giving it room to escape.

Video of the rescue showed the cat didn’t enjoy being held and ran off after being freed from the crawlspace.
