MIDDLETOWN, N.J. (AP) - A frenzied feline caused quite the commotion after it was spotted clinging to a median divider on a New Jersey highway.
NJ.com reports (https://bit.ly/1DB4u1e ) police found the frightened gray tiger-striped cat on the concrete barrier of Route 36 Saturday as cars sped by.
Middletown police stopped traffic to retrieve the animal. But the panic-stricken cat jumped into the undercarriage of the police car.
Authorities shut down several lanes of the highway for about an hour as animal control and a tow truck mechanic worked to free the cat.
Crews freed the animal, which was left unharmed.
Police say the cat didn’t have a micro-chip and wasn’t wearing a collar or tags. They’re asking for the public’s help in locating the cat’s owner.
