Massachusetts man attacked by bobcat in his garage
BROOKFIELD, Mass. — A man in Massachusetts says all he heard was a hiss before a bobcat pounced on him in his own garage, sinking its teeth into his face and its claws in his back.
Roger Mundell Jr. went into the garage in Brookfield on Sunday morning to fetch some tie-down straps for a friend when the animal attacked.Okay, getting attacked in your garage by a damn bobcat is pretty interesting. But that's not the most interesting part of this article. No, this is:
Mundell and his wife pinned the cat to the ground and shot it dead.In MASSACHUSETTS! See, we're not all helpless discouragers of self-help here in Mass. Some of us grok the concept that when seconds count - i.e. when a goblin is kicking in a door or a bobcat is chewing your face off - the police are only minutes away... Pretty much north, south, and west of Boston, the state is pretty darn conservative - it's just that the descendants of our Founding Fathers are drowned out by the liberal "elite".
I strongly doubt that Mr. Mundell will be prosecuted for violating the "no discharge of a firearm within 500 feet of a dwelling" ordnance...
That is all.
