BEACON TRANSCRIPT – Because law enforcement is not only about busting bad guys and finding missing people, we give you the heartwarming story of a Florida detective who nearly took apart her police car to rescue four kittens stuck underneath the hood. Reportedly, all four mini-purring machines are doing well.
Florida Detective Said She Head a Strange Sound Coming from Beneath the Car
Michelle Grogan is Ocoee Police Department detective and the protagonist of this story that was posted on the Department’s Facebook page.
According to Grogan, on early Monday, she got into her car, ready for another day in the line of duty. As she began backing up, the Florida detective heard a distinctive meow coming from somewhere inside the car.
Fearing that a mother cat and her kittens could have taken refuge underneath her police car, Grogan stopped the engine and got out. After popping the hood, she discovered four adorable kittens stuck between the engine’s compartment and the car’s chassis.
Grogan hopped on the radio and called in her colleagues to help free the kittens. As the story goes, it took Grogan, another police officer, several Animal Control agents, a team of local mechanics, and a sanitation worker at least a couple of hours to free the kittens in distress. More than that, the people who arrive to help the Florida detective nearly dismantled the engine compartment.
Still, all’s well when it ends well. Grogan and the other people managed to free the kittens, which were later taken to the local shelter. The kittens are too small to be given for adoption.
The Florida detective told a local news outlet that the kittens probably belonged to a stray she’s been seen roaming around the neighborhood. Grogan added that she doesn’t feel like she wasted valuable police resources trying to free the kittens.
