It was supposed to be a walk between grandmother, grandson and dog. But it turned into a bobcat attack.

  • Karen Morse and her 13-year-old grandson Robert were getting ready to walk to the dog in North Port, Florida, when they were attacked by a bobcat.
  • The bobcat grabbed the dog by the neck and started scratching the teen in the leg before they were able to escape. 
  • Wildlife officers arrived and tried to capture the bobcat but were also attacked.
  • The bobcat had rabies so everyone involved had to get shots.
