Thanks to those eagle-eyed bin men who saved the life of an innocent moggy.
Two bin men happened to stop themselves from dumping the rubbish stored in the garbage compactor when they heard a mild meow emerging from a stinking pile of waste. It was in Stockholm, Sweden and they two were about to burn the huge five tons food rubbish. The dying sound of a creature made them aware of looking what they heard. It was a cat named Melker which was screaming. The team spent more than half an hour to shift the garbage aside to take out the cat safely.
A team member told Mirror - "If we'd not gone to save the cat it would have headed for the incinerator, and you can just imagine what would have happened. We had a shovel to remove the waste as carefully as we could without doing any harm and a broom to try to get the kitten out. Eventually, we got it out and saved it which was a great feeling."
After the rescue, Melker was taken to a nearby veterinary clinic. And Maria Carlsson who is a member of the clinic has decided to adopt him.
