According to the NYDailyNews.com, a cat sitting in the middle of New York railroad tracks was saved from certain death by a train conductor. The animal was unable to move as he had a Sun Chip bag stuck over his head.A photo of the cat on the train tracks with a bag over his head. (Photo credit: John Ross)
“I figured it may be a cruel trick by some kids — or the cat might be trying to get some food,”Ross told the NYDailyNews. “I saw he was alive — he was moving,” Ross said. “I actually petted him.”
Ross took some photos of the distressed feline. Once he took the bag off the cat’s head, the animal quickly ran away.
This isn’t the first time Ross has been a lifesaver. in 2009, he tackled an ex-con who was stabbing another man, and held him until police arrived.
