Michael Binger, an ISA Certified Arborist with Growing Earth Tree Care, rescued a kitten that was stranded about 70 feet up in a tree. The kitten jumped into Michael’s arms as the climber made his way up to him. The kitten’s owner and various onlookers called him a hero for his efforts. He found out about the kitten when a friend alerted him to the situation on Facebook.
Thousands of cats and other animals get caught in trees every year. Michael has decided to take things a step further by starting a Facebook page designed to link up folks who have animals stuck in trees with climbers that have the skills and desire to help out. It is still in the design stage, but when he’s ready, we will link up to it. Way to go Michael!
