Tugboat crew rescues cat that had been thrown off La. bridge

(CARRIERE, Miss.) — A tugboat crew rescued a cat that had been deliberately thrown off a bridge over Lake Pontchartrain, the Picayune Item newspaper reported. The vessel crew witnessed the flying feline plunge into the water, and a small boat maneuvered to pick it up. The boaters put the cat on a barge, and one of the tug crewmen has adopted the new pet, which his family named “Buttons.”
