The homeowner called animal control who trapped Mollie safely.

“She had a pattern, she had a route. So it was important to keep her feeling safe in that area, and sure enough she came out to do her route and that scent drew her in and she went on into that trap. So we’re really over the moon,” said Jenna Dunn, an animal control officer.
