Pet cat saves boy from dog that was attacking him (with video)
By Will Lerner 3 hours ago Odd News

Surveillance video outside a home in Bakersfield, California shows that a young boy was riding his bicycle when a dog came around a parked car and started to attack him. As KERO ABC23 reports, he was saved by an unlikely hero – his pet cat, Tara. Before you watch the video, you should know there are images of the bite marks at the end that could be deemed disturbing by some viewers.

Tara the cat raced over and pounced at the dog, before chasing it away. The boy’s mother, Erica Triantafilo, then raced over to her son. KGET 17 News reports that Ms. Triantafilo told them that the, “dog was still hanging around and she tried to chase it away and it bit her as well.” KERO says that her son had to get stitches, but that he will be fine and that the dog belongs to a neighbor and is now, “under observation.”

Wow that dog did some serious damage, but I wonder who was filming this at that exact moment and why.

Cats are territorial as hell. I have seen my barn cats go medieval on random cats, dogs, groundhogs, deer that wander through my patch. It's fun to watch. The inside cats on the other hand are a bunch of hobos who get frightened when someone breaks wind. Worthless.

I once had a neighbor whose indoor - outdoor cat kept their yard dog free.

One of the funniest pictures is that of a cat here in Jersey who treed a bear.

Yes ... and it's a relatively small dog.

According to the second article it was footage from routine surveillance. The dog got loose as the neighbor pulled their car out of a fenced, gated yard. The neighbor called 911 and the dog is under voluntary 2 week observation.

Update:

Zitat
11:34 AM PT -- We're told the dog was picked up Tuesday by animal control -- in an extremely aggressive state -- and a decision has been made to euthanize the animal.

I can't imagine that the dog is still alive. Dog does that, it's a problem that can't be fixed.
