Louisiana firefighters perform 'kitten extrication' in video

Was this rescue pulled off without a (cat) scratch?

Two firefighters in Louisiana were caught on camera in a so-called “kitten extrication,” WPVI reports. 

The incident involved Eric Dupuy and Richie Carter, according to St. Tammany Fire Protection District #1. 

“While blowing out the engine bay Firefighter Eric Dupuy found a kitten with its head stuck inside of the basketball goal base, so he and Firefighter Richie Carter went to work and performed a successful kitten extrication!” the fire department wrote on Facebook Sunday.

St. Tammany Fire Protection District #1 also shared a snap of firefighters with the kitten. 

“As if the recue [sic] wasn’t enough, Firefighter Eric Dupuy has decided to adopt the kitten as a family pet,” public information officer Jason Gaubert told Fox News via email Monday.
