ABU DHABI: The Civil Defence teams in Abu Dhabi rescued a cat trapped on a major road in the capital on Thursday morning.

In a video that went viral on social media, a scared cat was spotted frozen in its place, as it was unable to cross the road due to heavy traffic and fast moving cars.

Director General of Abu Dhabi Civil Defence, Colonel Mohamed Abduljalil Al Ansari, said that the operations room had received a tip-off about the cat stuck on the side of Sheikh Zayed Road.

A team from the Civil Defence in cooperation with police patrols in Abu Dhabi instantly blocked traffic on that road and rescued the cat.

The Civil Defence teams deal with such incidents on a regular basis with all seriousness from a humanitarian point of view and the principle of animal welfare.
