    That's crazy. I'm surprised the dog survived if the cat was chewing on his neck.

    I wonder if perhaps it was similar to how a cat will often toy with a rodent before killing it? Regardless, that dog should be getting a steak for dinner every night from now on! Talk about an appropriate name.

    I remembered this one because I had a Blue Heeler when this happened.

    Quote Originally Posted by ABC News
    It wasn't bad enough that 85-year-old Ruth Gay broke her nose and dislocated her shoulder when she fell in her Fort Myers, Fla., back yard earlier this week. Then she could only lie there helplessly while she heard what she was sure was her brave little dog Blue being devoured by an alligator.

    She shouldn't have given up faith in the 35-pound Australian blue heeler.

    Blue was bloodied in the encounter, but fought off an alligator who apparently came into Gay's yard to investigate the fallen woman.

    "I knew that alligator had been hanging around all day and I was afraid it got him," Gay said. "I just figured it had."

    She said she had seen three alligators in a creek that borders her yard earlier in the day, ranging from 6 to 12 feet long. She was sure that one of the reptiles was in the yard when Blue, who laid down against her after she fell and found she couldn't rise, suddenly got up growling.

    Moments later she heard more fierce snarling, then snapping and yelping, and she thought her dog was being eaten by one of the gators, she said.

    Then everything was quiet.

    Gay, who couldn't turn her head because of her injury, didn't know what had happened to her dog until her daughter and son-in-law arrived at the house. Blue greeted the couple at their car and led them to where the woman lay injured.

    She was taken to a hospital for her injuries, and Blue was stitched up at Suburban Animal Hospital.

    "There were a lot of little puncture wounds, bite wounds," Dr. Terry Terlep, whose colleague treated the injured animal, told The Associated Press. He said Blue suffered a stomach wound that had to be stapled. His other injuries were cleaned, and he was given antibiotics and painkillers.

    "He's a little dog and fast like lightning," Terlep said. "He was trying to fend off this animal, trying to get it to go away. And he's so fast he could get out of the way.

    "It's amazing what an animal will do in a time of need," Terlep said. "He's a pretty brave dog."

    I seem to also remember that dog recieving some kind of medal or award for his courage, and a picture of him with a bib on being treated to a steak dinner at a fancy restaurant.

    What an awesome dog. #1 on steaks for life.

    Here's an interesting book for those of you in mountain lion country, Colorado's Front Range in particular.

    I wish that we humans were as protective as a "good" dog. Great Story.
    I think its disgusting and terrible how people treat Lance Armstrong, especially after winning 7 Tour de France Titles while on drugs!

    This reminds me of a YouTube clip that I saw a while ago. A traffic camera showed a dog that was laying in the street after being hit by a car. None of the traffic stopped, they just swerved around it. A second dog entered the road, grabbed it with it's mouth, and dragged the injured dog off to the side of the road.

    just watched the local news and both kids involved in these incidents are okay.The dog had surgury (paid for) today and during the surgury it was found out the dog was very lucky.If the cougar had bit it one half inch different from where it did the dog would have died. It's owner says that there is a nice big juicy steak waiting for her when she gets home.

    you're all going to hate me but I feel bad for the cougar, can you imagine how hungry the poor thing was to not only try to attack the kid but do so with a dog clearly visible? we take up the land where they've been hunting for generations then get pissed when they come to "our" house to hunt? how ****ed up is that?
    You see, their morals, their code...it's a bad joke, dropped at the first sign of trouble. They're only as good as the world allows them to be. I'll show you. When the chips are down, these...These "civilized" people...they'll eat each other. See, I'm not a monster. I'm just ahead of the curve

    I've felt the same way about that issue since I was old enough to really understand what was done to them, but I will keep my fridge well stocked.....just in case. ;0)

    EDIT! I just had a horrible image flash in my mind! Police pulling their guns and shooting a few American Indians in the head as they chewed on the back of my dogs neck!

    Its really not that uncommon, we have cougars pretty much everywhere. On a couple of our back trails cougars have been known to track bikers until they get out of their territory. No major attacks there, in Squamish there is a cougar that hangs out on a really popular hiking trail. Killed a dog off leash this summer and likely should have killed the stupid brit who tried to walk within 5 ft of it to get video footage.

    These winter time ones are probably caused by the massive snow early in the season. Bummer, they really are beautiful to watch - from a distance.

    Some of us are. Try to hurt my dog and you will find out, not that he needs any help, he is big and healthy. I doubt a cougar would attack him given any choice in the matter.
