PC: Maui Humane Society

On Monday, Nov. 27, the Maui Humane Society received a call that a kitten was trapped in a deep hole.

The hole was drilled by Maui Electric to place a power pole and was covered with a pallet and a rock.

When Humane Enforcement Officer Castro arrived, she removed the pallet and saw the kitten staring back up at her. The hole was too narrow to place a trap, so Officer Castro lowered her loop stick into the hole, looped it around the kitten and carried him up to safety.

The kitten (#H176) is now safe in a foster home and will be available for adoption as soon as he is big and strong enough to go home.
