Cat Saves Boy from Dog Attack

05/14/2014

Wow!  Warning, this video is a bit graphic. But amazing. A little boy was riding his bike in his driveway and was suddenly attacked by an unleashed and unattended dog. What happens next is truly amazing.

Domestic cats aren't known for their loyalty or protective instincts. Descended from solitary wild cats, it's just not in their DNA the way it is for dogs that are natually social and live in family groups. So what this cat did is pretty remarkable. 

Jezebel reports:

 "Harrowing security camera footage taken outside of the boy and cat's home show the boy playing on his bicycle in the driveway before being attacked, unprovoked, by the neighbor's unleashed dog. But before the dog can drag the boy down the driveway, in comes family cat Tara like a bolt of righteous fucking lightning to attack the dog and chase it away. Shortly thereafter, the boy's mother runs into the shot and picks him up. According to local Bakersfield news, the boy suffered minor injuries that required some stitches on his leg and the dog is now under observation."
