A surveillance video taken outside a home in California shows a cat saving a boy from being brutally attacked by a dog.
In the video, you see a young boy on his tricycle sitting in his driveway when the neighbor’s dog runs over and sinks his teeth into the boy’s leg, dragging him down the driveway.
That’s when a surprise hero enters the scene – the boy’s childhood cat named Tara. The dog is a lot bigger than Tara but she runs over and pounces on the dog and he immediately runs away and down the street.
The boy still needed stitches in his leg, but it looks like the cat helped save him from getting hurt even worse.
Police said the dog will be quarantined for 10 days then euthanized.
