‘I wasn't dying today:’ Grandma kills rabid bobcat with her bare hands

Brave woman strangles and kills rabid bobcat - Tamil Movie News

Run away? In a recent news, a woman claims that she strangled and killed a wild rabid bobcat as it tried to attack her?

The incident happened June 7 around 6:15 pm on Liberty Church Road, when Hart County deputies responded to reports of a woman calling for help.

Phillips said she grabbed the cat by the neck and started squeezing it.

"I took it straight to the ground and started inching my hands up to its throat", the 46-year-old told the Athens Banner-Herald.

Phillips said the almost 40-pound bobcat then landed on her chest and charged at her face.

Phillips says she grew up in the country, where her father-in-law was once a trapper of bobcats.

Phillips refused to release the beast until her son showed up and stabbed the animal "four or five times".

"As soon as it took the first step, I was in trouble and I knew it", Phillips told the affiliate. "I wasn't dying today".

Phillips suffered a broken finger and several bite and claw wounds to her hands, arms, chest and legs.

"I started praying, don't let her come to the door", said Phillips.

It also says the attack has left her with limited use of her hands.

Wildlife authorities arrived at her house and informed her that the dead bobcat was rabid.

How the bobcat came to venture in Phillips front yard and whether there had been similar attacks or confrontations in the vicinity wasn't immediately clear. But, worst of all, she must get a painful and expensive series of shots to ensure she doesn't contract rabies from the bobcat.

An online fundraising account has been established to help with her medical expenses, which can be found here.
