YORK – In this week’s 50 degree ‘heat wave’ it may seem like last week’s frigid temperatures are long in the past, but for one furry York resident, low daytime temperatures could have proved deadly just this past Friday if it weren’t for a rescue by her now adopted dad, a Sergeant with the Livingston County Sheriff’s Office.
According to the county Sheriff’s Facebook page, Deputy Sergeant Chad Draper was on routine patrol supervising the day shift when he came across the little kitten in the middle of Route 20 in the Town of York.
“[Sergeant Draper] first thought she had been hit by a car because she couldn’t move,” posted the Sheriff’s Facebook page. “He put her into his cruiser and took her to the York Animal Hospital. It ends up she wasn’t hit but instead had frostbite from the severe cold temperatures.”
The staff at the animal hospital were able to nurse her back to health, and now Sergeant Draper has adopted her. He appropriately named her ‘Elsa’ from the movie Frozen.
The Facebook page said that Elsa is now resting comfortably and healing by the fireplace in Sergeant Draper’s archery shop, and congratulated him for doing an awesome job.
