Soccer Goalie Penalized For Rescuing Cat
RENEE MONTAGNE, host:
Good morning. I'm Renee Montagne.
In Croatia, a soft-hearted soccer goalie thought he was just doing a good deed when he saw a cat on the field. Early in the match, the goalie picked up the cat and carried it to safety under the scoreboard, and that's against the rules. A penalty was called on the player for leaving the field during a game, though opposing fans were so impressed, they spent the rest of the match cheering on the cat-saving keeper and booing the ref.
