The stray was recently found roaming the tracks near the 69th Street terminal.

The SEPTA workers feared he could get hurt, or killed, so they set up a trap to get him out of harms way.

Jermaine is now in recovery at Keystone Veterinary Emergency and Referral in Havertown.

Vets say he has a partially amputated leg, likely due to electrocution or being hit by something, and other injuries.

A GoFundMe page has been set up to raise money for the surgeries Jermaine needs.
