Who's afraid of the big bad wolf...or rather, the big, bad coyotes? Not a Seminole, Fla., pit bull named "Jack," reported Saturday's Fox News.
Sherree Lewis, who cares for her son's dog, Jack, is crediting the dog with saving the family cat, named "Kitty."
Kitty nearly used up all of her nine lives in one fell swoop when two coyotes decided that she looked like their next meal.
Lewis described the frightening scene:
As I was walking to the door, I could see the coyotes over here,"
"One had her by the neck and the other had her by the tail,
Jack, seeing his feline friend in danger, quickly sprang into action, racing out of the house and after the attacking coyotes.
Jack's quick action prompted the coyotes to drop Kitty and run.
The violent shaking left the cat with brain swelling and a broken tooth, but she is expected to survive.
In the meantime, Jack is keeping a close eye on his little friend, and an eye out for the predators who almost stole her life.
Lewis expressed her appreciation of the protective dog:
Jack is a hero. He saved the kitty's life and he just shows how good dogs can be. Big dogs can protect you, especially if something like this happens."
