Effort Underway to Rescue Kittens From Storm Drain in Denton County

Employees from a veterinary hospital, along with police and fire crews, are trying to rescue two kittens from a storm drain.

A Denton County community is pulling together to rescue a litter of kittens stuck in a storm drain.

The Double Oak Veterinary Hospital sent NBC 5 pictures of a momma cat and her one kitten, who were rescued. The hospital staff said there are still two kittens stuck in a small pipe that people cannot reach.

The employees have set up a trap that will hopefully catch the kittens.

It's been a community effort. The hospital employees told NBC 5 it was Cross Timbers Water Supply workers who were able to get the one kitten out. 

The Double Oak Volunteer Fire Department and animal control officers are also pitching in. They will be checking on the trapped kittens to see if they make it out of the pipe and into the trap.

People helping in the rescue said Monday they were trying to reach a plumber that has a fiber optic cable to help them see into the drain.

We'll post updates here as they come.
