Police officers have the important job of catching bad guys and putting them behind bars, but the other part of their job protecting and helping those in need, which is exactly what one cop did when he saw a tiny animal trapped in his cop car.
While getting out of an unmarked police cruiser Monday morning, one Miami-Dade police lieutenant, whose name has not been released, did a double take when he thought he saw something move in the grille of the car. When he took a closer look, however, he realized two tiny eyes had been staring right back at him.
Stuck right behind the grille of the Dodge Avenger was a tiny kitten, who somehow crawled inside to possibly get some shade from the heat, but got trapped.
The officer tried to get the kitten, who the Miami-Dade Police Department named ‘Pikachu’, out from behind the grille, but couldn’t figure out a way to remove the baby without causing any harm.
The police car was driven to the police department’s Fleet Management’s Internal Services Department, where the worked for an hour to loosen part of the grille so they could squeeze Pikachu out.
Watch the entire video below to see the precious moment tiny Pikachu was rescued by the police.
