Most people are afraid of pitfalls because of their unfair reputation as a vicious attack dog. Yet pitbulls can actually be very gentle and loving animals. If you want to avoid a vicious animal, you might want to watch out for a cat.

In Saanich, B.C., Javiera Rodriguez was walking her pitbull when a cat jumped out of the bushes and attacked her dog. When she tried to get the cat off her pitfall, the cat turned around and attacked her.

While there are laws to protect the public from animals such as pitbulls, there are no similar laws to protect people from vicious cats. The next time you’re walking around, don’t watch out for pitbulls. Watch out for a mean cat.
