Georgia Grandmother Strangles Rabid Bobcat With Her Bare Hands After It Attacked Her
Does your grandma bake a killer strawberry rhurbarb pie? That’s all swell and good, but can she kill a rabid bobcat with her bare hands? This grandmother can and did. A grandma murked a bobcat when it attacked her. Nana: 1, Bobcat: 0.
Around 6:00 p.m. last Saturday, DeDe Phillips was taking a photo of the new bumper sticker she put on her truck. The 46-year-old grandma from Hart County, Georgia, had just applied the bumper sticker that said: “Women Who Behave Rarely Make History.” Little did DeDe know that this quirky bumper sticker would become her mantra for the immediate future.
Suddenly, a rabid bobcat was starring at her and then next thing DeDe knows is that it viciously attacked her. Nana’s survival instints kicked in and she took matters into her own hands. “It caught me slightly on my face, but I got him before he could do much damage there,” Phillips said. “I took it straight to the ground and started inching my hands up to its throat. I knew that was the only way I was getting out of this. Not today. I wasn’t dying today.”
The badass grandma began squeezing the cat’s neck and forced herself not to scream because she didn’t want to alarm her 5-year-old granddaughter to run outside and potentially be attacked. Once grandma had neutralized the wild cat, she screamed to her daughter-in-law to call 911. Soon after, DeDe’s son arrived at the scene.
