Hero Cat Saves Boy from Dog Attackupdate_graphic_red_bar
11:34 AM PT -- We're told the dog was picked up Tuesday by animal control -- in an extremely aggressive state -- and a decision has been made to euthanize the animal.

Update_Graphic_Bar_Grey_Gray
Let's be honest, most cats don't do squat, but this feline from Bakersfield,CA is the exception ... after it ran to the aid of a young boy being attacked by a dog ... and scared the vicious animal away. MEOW!!!!

Check out this surveillance video from Tuesday afternoon ... you can see the boy riding his bike in front of the home when the dog comes around from behind an SUV and  drags the boy off his tricycle by his leg.

The dog wrestles with the boy's leg for just a few moments until the HERO CAT comes flying in ... knocking the dog off the boy before chasing the canine away.

The boy's parents say he needed a few stitches after the attack (you can see his injuries below) but overall, he's doing fine. According to local reports, the dog belonged to a neighbor and is now under investigation.

I want a cat like that. Why did the lady leave the bike on top of the boy's leg and walk away? Why didn't she pick the boy up and take him in the house?

Same thing happened to me when I was about 7. It's the reason I hate dogs and have a phobia to this day (I’m now 40).

Why did the lady leave the injured boy there on the ground? Was it the dog owner or the mom? I think it had to be the neighbor, otherwise that's one crappy parent.

I love good dogs, but hate the aggressive ones, especially if they are running loose. The owners should pay for the stitches, etc. as well as the cost of euthanizing their dog.
