A family posted a video on YouTube Wednesday morning of the family cat saving a boy from a dog attack.
The 56-second video from surveillance cameras shows the boy riding his bike Tuesday when the dog attacks him.
The cat immediately charges out and scares off the much-larger dog.
The boy’s mother told local news firm KERO-TV Channel 23 that the boy had sustained a deep bite wound on the leg which had already been stitched up.
The mother also said the dog was owned by a neighbor and was already being observed.
A dog is known as man’s bestfriend, but the recorded incident on Tuesday may very well force humans to think otherwise.
The report also cited a separate footage recorded from outside the house of the dog’s owner showing the dog facing the direction where the boy is riding his tricycle. The dog’s ears go up before he runs toward the SUV and attacks the child.
The video then shows the dog dragging the boy away from his bike for a moment before the cat comes running and knocks the dog off the child.
The last part of the second video shows the mother, the child, and the cat facing the direction of the dog’s house. The footage also shows the two gashes on the boy’s leg and then the same bite wounds with several stitches.
