STEVENS POINT (WKOW) -- A man near Stevens Point saved a cat he found hanging from the end of a rope that was tied to a dam.
Gino Bulek used a fishing net to rescue the animal, and upon seeing it up close realized someone had actually tied a noose around the cat's neck to hang it.
"I saw the animal and I knew I couldn't leave it there. It looked like it was close to death.
After all he had been through I couldn't just let him stay at the Humane Society. I felt like I had a bond with him since I had saved him."
The cat used up one of his nine lives and survived.
Gino took him home and named him Lucky.
