DILLSBURG, Pa. (WHTM) – Police are looking for a driver who reportedly threw an 8-week-old kitten from a pickup truck.

Upper Allen Township police said a witness reported the kitten was tossed from the driver side window of a small blue pickup on Route 15 northbound, about a mile north of the York County line.

The kitten was then trapped in traffic against the center barrier before it was rescued by an officer.

The Dillsburg Veterinary Center says it’s caring for the kitten and performing diagnostics to determine the extent of her injuries.

“She’s hanging in there. She’s had a pretty rough morning, as you can imagine,” said Dr. Ivan Pryor, owner of the Dillsburg Veterinary Center. “But, she seems to be doing pretty well. Right now, we’re not seeing anything too serious. She’s pretty beat up, and she had some bumps and bruises and a few scratches. Things like that. No broken bones or anything more serious that we can find at this time.”

Dr. Pryor says they plan to keep the kitten for a few days in order to get her healthy. They then plan to put her up for adoption. Those considering adopting the unnamed cat can express interest on their Facebook page.

On its Facebook, the veterinary center said the pickup was described as an older model Chevrolet S10. They said the witness who called police was unable to get the license plate number.
