A kitten trapped on top of a speed limit sign was rescued by Mountain Home Police Friday.
Three officers — Robert Elom, Josh Martinez, and a reserve officer Annette Bigalow — stopped by a 35 mph speed limit sign on the Sunset Strip around 3 p.m. With the help of some concerned citizens, the officers pulled the gray kitten off the sign, police said.
The kitten on the sign also had a brother. Both animals were thirsty, hungry and scared, but quickly transported to an animal shelter, according to the police department.
In a Facebook post, police laid out why they took time to help the kittens in distress.
