No rescue is too big or small for Pleasant Valley State Prison (PVSP) firefighters, even if it involves a kitten stuck in a tree.
PVSP Fire Department did not hesitate to help concerned employees when they noticed a kitten stuck high in a tree. Incarcerated firefighters scaled the tree, safely retrieving the fearful kitten.
“Our firefighters are known for showing compassion for all PVSP residents. This includes felines that have established a presence here,” said acting Warden Tristan.
Outside of being tired and hungry, it was a happy ending for the kitten. The four-legged ball of fluff was taken home by a concerned prison employee.
