Police rescue kitten from the Lake Pontchartrain Causeway

Louisiana police rescued and located a home for a kitten found stranded in the middle of a Louisiana bridge on Tuesday.

Causeway General Manager Carlton Dufrechou said a commuter called the bridge authority Tuesday afternoon to report seeing the kitten on the northbound span of the Lake Pontchartrain Causeway about a half-mile from Metairie.

Dufrechou said Officer Shenandoah Jones rescued the kitten, which seems to be OK except for a small bruise on its chin.

The animal must have been hiding in the engine compartment of a large car or SUV and fell out, or someone tossed the kitten from a moving car, Dufrechou said.

A bridge dispatcher adopted the kitten, which the Causeway employees named "Miracle."
