Heroic Woman Saves Cat From Coyote

main image

What would you do if you saw your beloved pet being carried off in the jaws of a predator?

Angela Green, a woman from British Colombia, Canada was awakened early Wednesday by the sound of furious growls and yowls coming from her patio. She ran outside and saw her patio furniture in disarray but no sign of her 12-year-old cat, Noonies.

Green instantly took off down one of the many paths leading into the wooded area near her ground-level condo. She's not sure what led her down that particular path, but eventually she was able to locate the largest coyote she'd ever seen. In his mouth was her precious cat, hanging limp like a ragdoll.  

Green credits her mother-bear instinct for kicking in to save her cat. She's not entirely sure how to explain what happened next, but she lunged yelling at the coyote in a fury. Apparently the coyote felt the enraged woman was too much to handle. He dropped the severely-injured cat and fled. 

Noonies was bleeding profusely from his head and barely breathing. Green got him to the vet quickly where he underwent jaw surgery. Noonies also suffered lacerations to the head and has a puncture wound to the ear. Treatment was expected to reach nearly $10,000, but the animal hospital decided to cover the costs of his care. 

Green is hopeful for a full recovery. “As soon as I got in the kennel today with him and started talking to him, he just started purring and purring,” she said. “That was a very tearful moment.”

I don't know how it is in Canada, but In the USA, even the Anti Cruelty Society will not let you adopt a cat, unless you will keep it inside, and they check! My opinion is if you let your cat out, you , YOU sign it's death warrant. Glad she saved it, but hope she learned a lessen. As for "a cat is happier if you let it out"..., so would your dog.

What do you think?
