Garbage disposal worker in Hillsboro, Oregon will find a small kitten is caught in a spray of foam tape and locked away in the trash.

This kitten is a few weeks old, but he is already used in one of his life.

The Washington County Sheriff’s Office said Wednesday that deputies rescued a kitten from a trash can earlier this month that is encapsulated in spray foam and locked in.

A garbage worker was working on an empty trash can in the vicinity of Hillsboro, Ore. on May 3, with the help of a hydraulic arm when he noticed that the contents of the container do not come.

“Upon further inspection, he noticed a small cat, is caught in a spray of foam, hanging upside down from his hind legs,” the sheriff’s office said in a press release. “The driver knew the cat was still alive, because he could hear it crying.”

The employee then took the 8-week-old male back to the Hillsboro Garbage disposal, where the crew worked on removing the kitten from the spray foam and bring it to a vet in the area for care.

“He looked like something out of a Halloween horror show,” Dr. Diane Healey with the Hillsboro veterinary clinic told FOX12. “This is, of course, not that there are too terribly long, or he would have choked, the head was covered, the face was covered, the legs were stiff, he could not move.”

The sheriff’s office said in a press release that the garbage came from a property with multiple structures, including two dwellings and a number of leased buildings.

“The kitten probably belongs to one of the two different wild cats that live on the property, both with litters of kittens,” said the police. “With all the people coming and going from the property, it is unclear who is responsible for this act of animal cruelty.”
