VIDEO: Cat Clings for Life On Steep Cliff Until Brave Rescuers Arrive

[youtube https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Lt0_9wA_slE?rel=0&showinfo=0]

Meet Zion, a Los Angeles cat who became trapped on a 100-foot cliff that disabled him from both reaching the ground and climbing further up. Neighbors noticed the stranded feline and called rescue workers, who rushed to Zion’s aid. The first step for the rescuers was to scale the cliff and catch Zion using nets. Workers proceeded to capture Zion as gently as possible. Although he was in distress, using the net to catch him was necessary to get him to safety.

After an initial failed attempt to catch Zion, workers successfully secured him with their nets and lowered him to safety. This heroic rescue is just one example of the importance of animal rescue workers. Additionally, the folks who called for help may very well have saved Zion’s life. This is why it’s important to call for help if you see an animal in distress!

    WHAT BEAUTIFUL, WONDERFUL HUMANS THEY ARE HELPING ALL ANIMALS WHEN IN NEED. THESE HUMANS ARE STRONG,
    MENTALLY AND PHYSICALLY, COURAGEOUS, AND POSSESS A BENEVOLENT WILL. THESE ARE THE KIND OF PEOPLE WE NEED
    TO GOVERN COUNTRIES. THE WORLD WOULD BE SUCH A WONDERFUL PLACE THEN. LET’S GET RID OF ALL ROTTEN PEOPLE
    WITH THE DEATH PENALTY INSTEAD OF KEEPING THEM ALIVE IN PRISON AND YOU PAYING FOR THEIR UPKEEP.

    Alfred Hitchcock had nothing on the suspense of this rescue. Congratulations to the rescuers who took the time and the care to rescue the kitty. I just wish we had been able to see him returned to his family.

    A big THANK YOU to the LA Animal Servics. They rescue, foster, re-home – EVERYTHING for all sorts of animals in need.
    Right now they’re looking for help with animals displaced by the horrible fires.
    Sending Good Thoughts to them, the residents, the animals – domestic and wildlife.
    They need all the good thoughts/prayers/time they can get <3

    Animal rescue crews are the most amazing people in the world. The rescuer had to figure out a way to keep kitty in the net and cleverly and quickly figured it out. Hooray for pet rescuers who always find a way to rescue an animal that gets into trouble.

      ANIMAL RESCUE PEOPLE ARE THE BEST HUMANS IN THE WORLD BECAUSE THEY POSSESS A BENEVOLENT WILL AND DO
      UNDERSTAND THE WONDERFULNESS OF ANIMALS, THAT DO NO HARM TO THE PLANET NOR TO HUMANS, JUST GIVE LOVE.
      THESE ARE THE HUMANS WHO SHOULD MANAGE EACH AND EVERY COUNTRY IN THE WORLD, THEN WHAT A BEAUTIFUL
      PLANET WE WOULD HAVE TO LIVE IN. THE DEATH PENALTY MUST BE GIVEN PRIORITY TO RID THE WORLD OF ALL THE
      HORRIBLE HUMANS THAT INFLICT SUFFERING ON INNOCENT ANIMALS.
