So when I read that headline this is what immediately came to mind.
Boy was I wrong!
(Except for the punching and Tim Hortons)
A man in Red Deer, Alberta is being called a hero after fending off a cougar (Like a big wildcat) with his bare hands!
On Boxing Day, Red Deer resident William Gibb went to his local Tim Hortons with to meet a friend for coffee. He brought his Husky Sasha with him and let her off the leash to go to the bathroom.
Next thing he hears is Sasha whimpering and something wrapped around her.
That something turned out to be a cougar!
“I scooped her up with my left, swung at the cat with my right. I tried to keep it away from me. I got a little scratch across the wrist but it didn’t do anything to me.” Gibb told Global News.
Sasha suffered two large gashes to the chest, four puncture wounds in the neck and a few other cuts. However the 5 years old, 80lb dog is expected to make a full recovery.
