GRAPEVINE, Texas (AP) - Technicians at a Dallas-area dealership have done it again when it comes to rescuing live animals trapped in vehicles.

KDFW-TV (https://bit.ly/1BPl0Lj ) reported Wednesday that workers at Park Place Lexus in Grapevine saved a kitten from an SUV after the driver heard meowing under the hood.

Crews on Dec. 26 located the cat behind a heat shield near the grille. Service manager Rod Moreno says workers could see the cat lodged between a vent. Moreno says the vent was cut out and the cat was safely removed.

An employee adopted the stray.

A Park Place Lexus mechanic in 2011 extricated a red-tailed hawk from a car grille. The driver stopped to report a bird flew into the front of his car. Technicians thought the hawk was dead - until it blinked.
