We'll warn you that the beginning of this video is upsetting to watch, because it shows a cat crying out in distress as a boa constrictor coils around its body, trying to kill it. Luckily, a hero comes by to save the cat from a terrible fate, lifting the snake and fighting to unclamp its jaws from the cat's leg, and its tightly coiled body from the rest of the cat. We won't keep you in suspense: He succeeds. (Come on. We wouldn't show you a video of a cat being killed.) But watch the video anyway to appreciate the heroism of a man who, as far as we're concerned, has justified his existence with this single act.
