PEORIA, Ariz. (AP) — A recycling truck driver in suburban Phoenix is being credited with saving a kitten from the trash.
Angelo Almendarez was collecting containers along his Peoria route Friday when he heard a strange sound coming from the back of his truck — a kitten's meow.
A city spokeswoman says the kitten is a male orange tabby estimated to be less than 3 weeks old.
Phoenix TV station KPHO reports the kitten has been adopted by an employee of Peoria's Streets Division.
This isn't Almendarez's first rescue. He recently saved a black kitten from the same predicament.
