Roger Mundell Jr, 53, from Massachusetts, went into his garage on Sunday and was got a surprise attack from a bobcat. After the animal bit his face and back, the bobcat ran out of the garage and bit Mundell’s 15-year-old nephew on the arms and back. Mundell and his wife pinned the cat to the ground and shot it dead.
All the injured are now being treated for rabies.
Bobcats are timid animals and usually avoid humans. It is highly unusual that they attack people. The size of a bobcat is twice of a domestic house cat.
