Thankfully, the workers did the right thing. Instead of trying to get rid of the animal themselves, they contacted Wildlife SOS, and two rescuers hurried to the airport to help.
The animal turned out to be a wild Asian civet cat. He’d probably wandered into the airport from the neighboring forest in search of food.
The civet cat was clearly distressed, and he huddled in the corner as the rescue team tried to catch him. He was also soaking wet, presumably because he was trying to drink out of one of the toilet bowls.
The rescue team did their best to keep the civet cat calm, and they spent 30 long minutes attempting to safely capture him. Their persistence paid off when they finally got him.
