Stray Cat Attacks Woman in the Snowthe daily dish
A woman in Melvin, Mich., fell victim to a vicious cat attack after she attempted to shoo away a stray feline that was bothering her mother's dog. She kicked snow at the aggressive cat, hoping it would stop confronting the dog. Instead, the cat responded by charging at the woman baring its teeth and claws, according to WJBK-TV.
A security camera captured footage of the attack. The victim reported that she had taken in the stray during the summer. She said the cat, whom she named Buddy, had been "sweet as pie." But Buddy appeared to be anything but sweet when he leapt at the woman, sinking his teeth into her forehead and clawing at her face.
Along with a trip to the hospital, the victim also suffered a cellulitis infection, causing her face to swell up. County officials captured Buddy to conduct a rabies test, for which the cat had to be euthanized because brain tissue is necessary for the procedure. He subsequently tested negative for rabies.
