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!
