Mission accomplished, #DCsBravest and @usparkpolicepio successfully rescued this cutie from a RR bridge abutment on the Potomac River. Our Fireboats stood by in case he decided to go for a dip. How he got there remains a mystery. Now in the hands of our US Park PD partners. pic.twitter.com/pgTN5frbmR— DC Fire and EMS (@dcfireems) March 28, 2021
