On May 13th, 4-year-old Jeremy was riding his bike on the driveway in front of his own home when the neighbor's dog attacked him, biting him in the leg and dragging him down the drive. Tara, the families cat, runs in and attacks the dog, causing the dog to release the boy. Jeremy needed a few stitches, but is otherwise fine, and very grateful to his family pet.
In watching this video, it should serve as a wake-up call to parents about the danger of dog attacks, and I was stuck most by the fact that this was a relatively small dog, yet you can see the power he has and the damage that occurs in just a few seconds. Imagine how much more damage an 80 or 90 pound Rottweiler could do.
Jeremy's father posted the surveillance video on YouTube, and it went
viral. Camera's are everywhere today, and this time we got an unusual
glimpse of a hero cat. If you haven't yet seen the video, you can view it on YouTube at https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=nAt5nwlrLoM
