MADISON, Wis. (WMTV)-- A kitten is at the Dane County Humane Society after UW-Madison Police officers rescued it from a fountain on campus.

According to UW-Madison Police Department spokesman Marc Lovicott, the stray kitten needed to be rescued from the UW-Madison College of Engineering around 1:30 p.m. Monday. Police received the call after several people tried to get the kitten out of the fountain, but were unable to reach the kitten.

Lovicott said the officers used a net to rescue the kitten. The feline is at the Dane County Humane Society and does not have any injuries from its ordeal.
