Doing the right thing isn't easy sometimes - but when it comes to helping an animal whose life is at stake, the reward in the end is always well worth the effort.
For the last week or so, folks frequenting the local Cultural Center in Araras, Brazil, had been puzzled to hear the crying sound of kittens emanating from the ground outside. Though the exact source wasn't clear, they tried alerting officials that animals may be trapped, but were told to turn a blind eye.
"Unfortunately, some people wanted to leave the kittens die there," one of those involved, Ricardo Urbach, told The Dodo.
Instead of ignoring it, however, they started digging.
