On Monday, Michigan's Livonia Police Department shared the harrowing story of Libby's rescue by a brave officer named Cameron Koss. A motorist on the I-96 freeway had called in for help after spotting the terrified kitten in the middle of the busy road. Libby was stranded, and was in serious danger of being run over.
Koss didn't hesitate to act.
"He encountered the caller on the right shoulder, who pointed out a small black ball huddled down next to the concrete divider (left shoulder)," the police department wrote online. "As you can imagine, this required strategy. Officer Koss and another officer backed their patrol cars down the shoulder to position themselves, hoping for a positive outcome."
Here's dramatic video showing how they achieved just that.
