VIDEO: Cat saves boy from vicious dog
BAKERSFIELD, Calif. — A family cat saved a little boy from a vicious dog attack, and the entire incident was captured on the family’s home security camera.
Roger Trantafilo of Bakersfield posted the video on YouTube Wednesday. He wrote on the video post, “My cat defends my son during a vicious dog attack and runs the dog off before he can do additional damage. Thankfully, my son is fine.”
“Before I could even get there, my cat clobbered the dog,” Erika Trantafilo, the boy’s mother, told CNN. She said the boy needed 10 stiches to close the wounds from the dog bite, but he was going to be OK.
Bakerfield Animal Control seized the dog, which belonged to a neighbor. They said the animal will be euthanized.
