In the US state of California, a fearless feline rescues a young boy from the clutches of a mad canine.
Four-year-old Jeremy Triantafilo was outside, playing on his bicycle in the front yard of the family's home, when he was suddenly attacked by the neighbor's dog. The pooch snuck up behind the boy, bit him, and began jerking him around violently. That's when Tara, the family cat and now local town hero, sprang into action. She jetted off the porch, down the driveway, and went airborne, right into the dog's rib cage, causing him to let go of the boy and run off. The dog was then quarantined by local authorities and is likely to be put to sleep.
