In a Facebook post Wednesday, Bridgeport Animal Control said a young boy saw an adult male throw the box over the bridge into the water in the area of Berkshire Ave. and Knowlton Street.
The cat was in a cardboard box that was completely taped shut inside a garbage bag.
The boy heard meowing coming from the box. The boy then ran to the water’s edge and was able to save the male cat. Afterwards, he flagged down a police officer.
The cat is fine.
Bridgeport Connecticut Animal Control is reaching out to the public for any information in connection with the discarded cat.
