Bakersfield, California - On Tuesday, a neigbor's pitbull dog attacked a small boy riding his bicycle in front of his home. The dog took a bite of the boy's leg and then began to drag him.
Tara, the boy's pet cat noticed the attack and jumps into action. The cat then attacked the dog and chased him away. All of the action was caught on home video surveillance.
The video was posted on YouTube by Roger Triantafilo, who titled the video 'My cat saved my son' and also wrote, "My cat defends my son from a vicious dog attack and runs the dog off before he can do additional damage. Thankfully my son is fine!"
The boy was hospitalized and received six stitches to close the dog bite wounds. The Triantafilo family say, the neighbor's pitbull dog was located and is being checked for rabies.
