WATCH: Bobcat stuck on top of pole along Florida interstate

It got down with some human encouragement

COLLIER COUNTY, FL (CNN) – Curiosity didn't kill the cat, but it did leave it stranded for a while.

The bobcat was spotted Thursday morning on top of a utility pole on Interstate 75 in Collier County by a Florida Department of Transportation camera.

That portion of I-75 is nicknamed “Alligator Alley” because it passes near Everglades National Park.

Video shows the feline panting atop the pole, not really sure what to do.

After a little prompting from some helpful humans in a cherry picker, the bobcat shimmied down the pole on its own, managing to avoid the attached power lines along the way, before escaping into the wild.
