    Tough guy, and he did well keeping his head and doing what he had to do. I personally would rather put a couple rounds from my carry piece into the kitty before the wrestling match started though.

    After choking it... I would be wearing it. Or hang it on the wall. "Hey what did you get that one with?"... MY BARE HANDS!

    That's just pretty cool.

    Still, I bet the dude wished he had a gun!

    I just saw this on the local news. He lives pretty close by. I have seen plenty of bobcats in my day, but I aint never had to fight one.

    Choking also works with dog atacks, so keep that in mind in case you ever have to take one out and can't get a shot off before it's on you. A friend of mine took out a Rotweiler this way while it was clamping onto him. He said it didn't take very long for the animal to expire, but he still was afraid to let go for a while. I don't blame him either.

    BTW: that cat has a nice pelt. I'd have it mounted and keep it in my living room.

    The cat did not go easily, the guy was well torn up before it was over.

    I would not ever want to go hand to hand with a tabby cat not to mention a Bobcat. Tough guy.

    Since it was rabid, I imagine they burned the cat, so he couldn't keep it.
