Bobcat attacks family in a driveway

Poor cat got the last ride from that dude


A North Carolina woman is grateful for her husband's quick thinking after being attacked by a rabid bobcat in the driveway of their home in a wild scene caught on video.

Kristi Wade's husband, Happy Wade, pulled an attacking bobcat off her back on April 9, threw it to the ground, and then chased it down and shot it dead. Tests later confirmed that the bobcat had rabies.

"He saved my life," Kristi Wade told NBC affiliate WECT. "I don't know where I'd be or what sort of shape I'd be in right now had he not been there."

The couple suffered bites and scratches and had to get multiple shots following the attack.

He'd probably been carrying that gun around for years waiting for a moment like that.

The next recommended video for me was "Litter and Boxes, Do's and Don'ts." I guess that's sort of related .

His high top hiking boots, cargo shorts, and neckerchief combo are proof that hes not to be trifled with!

Im also pretty sure the guy is talking mad shit to that cat just before he throws it.

Poor cat? I don't think anyone will miss a rabid bobcat terrorizing the neighborhood. Good for that guy for taking care of it.

Poor cat that he got rabies though. Rabies is definitely not something to mess with. A virtual 100% fatality rate left untreated.

And all this time I thought cats always landed on their feet.

He was probably more calm then I would have been

And I always make fun of movies and TV shows when a really powerful bad guy throws our hero instead of just crushing or stomping him but I guess if I was getting bit and scratched like this guy was you just want to get rid of that thing.

Unfortunately they found a previous victim of this rabid bobcat.

Hope she wasn't bitten on the face or anywhere near. If rabies shots weren't given almost *immediately* in such a case, she would be dead in less than 7 days from the dreaded disease.

Maybe a new Olympic sport was invented the bobcat toss.
