A bobcat was enjoying his breakfast of duck just outside Trail when he froze to the train track he’d been sitting on.

Lucky for the cat, a train crew spotted him and came to the rescue.

Conductor Coby Reid took to social media Thursday, Feb. 18, to share his discovery.

Reid said they used warm water to free the cat from the rail.

Kamloops conservation officers cautioned the public earlier this week about more bobcat sightings than normal in the city.

Bobcats pose no threat to humans, but have been known to attack small pets or livestock.
