Construction Workers Heard Cries Coming From Underground. You Won't Believe What They Rescued!

Andrew Chatwin and Isaac Wyler found a kitten buried up to it's head in cement trapped in a metal tube on a construction project they were working on. It's sickening that someone would do this, but thankfully the cat was rescued and is safe now.

UP DATE: The kitten died a few days later.

Authorities in the Mohave County Sheriff's Office in Colorado City, Ariz. announced Tuesday they will actively pursue an animal cruelty case and post new patrols in the community after a helpless kitten was thrown into a metal pipe filled with cement during the Memorial Day holiday. Andrew Chatwin rescued the kitten by cutting through the metal tube and chipping away at the hardened cement. snip

As soon as the emaciated and injured kitten was freed, he was taken to Best Friends Animal Society in Kanab, Utah. Sadly the kitten named Thomas by his rescuers, died a few days later as a result of his massive injuries.

The article suggests that this and other acts of animal cruelty are acts of religious retaliation against the property owners who left the Warren Jeffs-led Fundamentalist Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints.

Raw footage of the trapped kitten and the rescue is at the link, but fair warning, it is very difficult to watch.

This is from last year... but worth the 2:35...

I would like to build a roadside "WannaTakaHavaLeava Little Library" to put

next to my driveway by the road. My neighborhood gets lots of foot traffic from people walking their dogs or just out for a constitutional. It would be a great way for me to dispose of some of my (way too many) books and maybe get to know some of the people in my neighborhood (and to have them get to know each other).

However, I can't find any plans for making one! DU always is the go to place for ideas and answers. Any ideas?

My objection to this piece is that he is compared to Edison. I think he's probably more like Tesla.
