A grey and white tabby who looks just like Jeter Harris was rescued this weekend after being stranded for five days 40 feet above the Clackamas River on the Carver Bridge in Oregon. The Oregon Humane Society’s Technical Animal Rescue Team was responsible for the daring rescue.
Rescuer Ulli Neitch rappelled over the bridge railing onto a bridge abutment. She spent 20 minutes gaining the cat’s confidence, then grabbed him and bagged him. The two then rappelled safely to the river bank below.
The animal rescue team is supported entirely through private donations to the nonprofit Oregon Humane Society and receives no tax dollars.
