Tiny Animal Freed From Drainage Pipe Following Six-Hour Ordeal in the Middle of the Night

Portland, Ore. -- For six hours on Sunday night and into
early Monday morning, crews from Portland Fire & Rescue worked tirelessly
to free a 3-week-old kitten from a 4-inch sewage pipe after neighbors on N.E.
Sandy Boulevard near 118th Avenue reported hearing the kitten's
cries. When the rescuers arrived on the scene, they discovered a whole series
of pipes, any one of which the kitten could have been trapped in. After digging
and using their searchlights to no avail, they called in a plumber, who was
able to locate the kitten using a snake camera. The crews then cut the pipe and
directed air into it so that the kitten would make her way back to an opening.
The plan worked, and the crew took Champ—as one of the firefighters named
her—back to the station for the night before taking her to the Oregon Humane
Society. None the worse for wear, Champ should be available for adoption in
about four weeks.
For demonstrating patience and know-how and heroically
working through the night to save the life of a scared little kitten, Portland
Fire & Rescue will receive PETA's Compassionate Fire Department Award.
"Thanks to the kindness and perseverance of the
Portland Fire & Rescue crews, Champ, who got herself in a bundle of
trouble, has a new lease on life," says PETA Executive Vice President
Tracy Reiman. "Portland is very fortunate to have first responders who are
ready to protect and serve the area's human and four-legged
Portland Fire & Rescue will receive a framed certificate
and a box of vegan chocolates.

Almost all of us grew up eating meat, wearing leather, and going to circuses and zoos. We never considered the impact of these actions on the animals involved. For whatever reason, you are now asking the question: Why should animals have rights? Read more.
