A pair of kittens is lucky to be alive today after being thrown out of the window of a white minivan last week along the Esko exit from Interstate 35.


According to Karen Brummer, director of the Friends of Animals shelter in Cloquet, a witness stated that after realizing what he had seen being tossed into the ditch might have been kittens, he looped around and got out to take a look. After his suspicions were realized, he picked the kittens up and delivered them to the shelter.
