BAKERSFIELD, Calif. — A boy was saved from a vicious dog attack – by a cat? It happened Tuesday, according to media reports.

The events unfolded in front of a couple of security cameras. 23ABC reported a neighbor's dog got loose, then set its sights on a young boy riding a bicycle in his front yard. The dog sneaks around an SUV, then grabs the boy by the leg.

Tara, the family cat comes running to the rescue, chasing the dog away. The mom told 23ABC that her son needed a few stitches, but he's going to be just fine.

That's one cool cat.

Some of these dog owners should have the animal taken away, obviously a vicious dog and running free? Good kitty scratch its eyes out !

We chuckle at those "beware of attack cat signs"-No more. As the old saying goes a dog may chase a cat, but its an awfully stupid dog that catches one.
