Property owner traps kittens by building a wall
The clock is ticking to rescue a group of cats trapped behind a brick wall in Queens.
They’ve been stuck for three days and are likely thirsty and hungry. Animal rescue groups and concerned residents are trying to save them; they reached out to PIX11 for help.
For months, the cats had been living in a narrow alley like area between an apartment building and garage on Northern Blvd. They’ve won the hearts of people in this neighborhood who stopped by to feed them.
A wall about 15 feet high was built on either end trapping the felines inside.They’re now out of sight - and their conditions unknown.
Sadly, the one cat that did escape before the wall went up now wanders on the other side and gazes up at the wall, trying to find a way to get back with his family.
[Carol] Yao says they have offered to pay for the cost to knock down a section of the wall.
