The seasons are changing and we’re experiencing some very chilly weather overnight and during the early morning hours, making it difficult for stray and wild animals to keep warm.
This causes them to seek shelter in some unusual and sometimes dangerous places, like cars. Last year we profiled Piston, a wild bunny who was found in the engine of a Toyota Sienna and today we’re covering Freddy Krueger’s story.
Freddy was found in the engine of a car after the person who found him had already started driving. He was then brought in to ACCESS LA for an exam and care, as he sustained some fairly serious lacerations to his hind leg and head. Luckily, he was stitched up and has healed very nicely, now living with some loving older cats and his new mom.
You can check for animals who may be hiding in your car by knocking on the wheel wells and hood of your car before starting it up and driving away!
