Stuck cat causes power cut

National News // June 13, 2018

Residents of the small Zurich town of Thalheim had to go without power for a while as the fire brigade scaled a 30 meter high pylon to rescue a young cat.

The cat wasn’t spotted by passersby until dusk. The power company decided a rescue operation overnight would have been too dangerous and so the poor moggie had to stay on its high perch all night.

But come dawn, the power was switched off and firefighters went up the pylon and managed to get the cat into a basket and lowered it safely to the ground.

A spokesman for the fire department said the cat was happy to see its rescuers and got into the basket without complaint.
