http://www.myfoxny.com/dpp/news/loca...rom_SUV_EnginePolice officers responded to Arthur Avenue in the Bronx where a driver of an SUV said an animal was stuck in his vehicle's engine Monday afternoon.
Indeed, when officers looked inside they saw a cat jammed in the engine block of the 2005 Nissan Murano, police said.
The driver told cops that he had driven about 2 miles from Marcy Place and the Grand Concourse before pulling over and realizing something was wrong.
Members of the NYPD's elite Emergency Service Unit came to the scene. ESU's Det. Jeffrey King and Det. Kris Cataldo worked to free the cat.
The cat was then taken to Animal Care and Control in good condition.

Wilfred Rodriguez heard rattling while he was driving Monday in the Bronx. After he parked, he spotted a bushy tail and a paw sticking out of the SUV's front end.
His initial reaction: "Oh my God! I killed a cat." He was relieved when the paw moved.
Detectives with the New York Police Department's Emergency Service Unit freed the grease-covered kitty by removing the SUV's battery and other vehicle parts.
