Super Cat Saves the Day: Pet Cat Saves Child From Dog Attack

supercatEvery now and then even a cat can be a useful. Case in Point:

A horrifying YouTube clip from Roger Triantafilo shows his son innocently riding a bike at the end of the driveway when a vicious dog approaches from behind the boy and attacks him.

Triantafilo’s cat was nearby and rushed to protect the boy, who was ripped off his bike by the dog and bitten multiple times on the ground. The feline chased away the dog, which was significantly larger, and returned to check on injured boy.

UPDATE, Wed, May 14, 2014, 4 pm TMZ reports that the dog was picked up by animal control on Tuesday, and the decision has been made to euthanize the animal.

It is so good to see that even a cat can body check a bad dog. Maybe they are more useful than just doing a poor job of keeping mice and snakes away from the house.
