A four-year old California boy was outside riding his bike when a neighbor's dog, without provocation, bit and dragged the boy.

The cat, Tara, said 'NOPE,' and ran to her person's defense, preventing worse injuries than the boy sustained on his leg. The young boy is fine but he did require some stitches on his leg.

Police have quarantined the dog for ten days after which the animal will be euthanized.
