There were cars speeding by in both directions, but Officer Smith was determined to save the tiny animal. Smith can be seen via his body camera footage scooping up the tiny kitten and bringing it into his squad car. The kitten didn't seem to mind, it settled into the officer's lap and got some pats and cuddles.
Officer Smith took the kitten to an animal shelter, but ultimately adopted her himself and named her Bella.
