Man Chucks Bobcat After It Attacks His Wife In The Driveway

 It is not the biggest one I've ever seen, but I wouldn't want to try poking hot butter up it's arse with a knitting needle! I'm pretty sure the husband and wife had to take the dreaded regime of rabies shots after the cat tested positive.

  1. It was the third week of August, riding a network of old mining roads in the foothills a little before dusk, on a dank, drizzly day. Almost time to go home, but decided to go down one more trail. There he (she??) was: a beautiful mountain lion about 30 yards away, standing sideways right in the center of the 2-track trail-with an even more beautiful 'J' curl at the end of it's long tail-just touching the ground.

    Had already stopped to consider whether to go or stay when I saw the cat. Slowly wheeled the bike around and gently hit the throttle, hoping not to ruin the day for either the cat or for me. I knew the area had tales of cat:human interactions, but at least I can say mine was definitely true. I'm guessing it was a young cat and maybe was not too hungry that day. A few years later a high school cross country runner was mauled and killed by a cat on a mountain trail about 40 miles away-it took a day or so to find his body as the cat had drug it off and covered it up.

  2. Reports state the bobcat tested positive for rabies....which explains it's actions. Such an animal vehemently avoid humans normally. So yes....they will have to be inoculated against rabies since they were bitten and scratched. Fortunately treatment for rabies exposure now is MUCH less painful and invasive than it was a half century ago.

    1. One of the neighbors down the street from them was also bitten, so three had to get the shot. A vet said the pain of the rabies is also a factor in animals acting like this. The poor couple, especially the guy, were eviscerated online by the usual idiots and leftards who felt for the poor cat and why didn't he just call authorities and wait for them to come. Yeah, as a country we're done.

  4. I don't know what the procedure is now but when I went though with it in 1969, it was 14 days of hell. I was stationed at a Naval base 26 miles north of Athens, Greece, when I got bit by a rat while sleeping. The nearest treatment was at the US Air Force base in Athens. At the time, no one had ever survived rabies. I was given a paper saying "Rabies is 100% fatal" and I had to sign it for treatment. I got taken into a room, told to lay on a gurney and expose my belly down to my pubic hair. Gorgeous woman comes in, starts feeling my stomach, and I tell her if she keeps doing that we'll have to go out for drinks. She says, "I'm an Air Force Captain Doctor and I'm going to take all thoughts of romance out of you in a couple of minutes." She takes a marker and draws a 1, a 2, a 3 and a 4 on my stomach in a big square. She hit me with the first shot and it was like an explosion of pain. They gave me the medication and I took it back to my base and got a shot a day for the next 13 days.

  5. I was bitten catching a bat when my baby daughter was trying play with it. WHOLE gambit of shots. Not really that bad. it was a lot less than a tetanus shot. but still a little painful.

  6. I was dog bit in India, a broken open face toilet if ever there was one.
    My rabies shots consisted of two, in the arm, 3 days apart & antibiotics for a week, 3xday.
    Perhaps others have had different treatment.
