Excusive Report from attack survivor, Mr. Nicholas Cobb of Newton MA:
|Cat Attack in Boston Suburb
Report of November 19, 1998
|NEWTON (MA) - I was sitting in my front
yard. My friend was petting the gray cat that had been hanging around my
house for a few weeks. I was sitting down to pet my cat when the gray cat
ran over to me. Suddenly it opened its mouth larger then my hand. A second
later there was four punctures in my hand.
The cat was soon after convicted of assault and battery. It was sentenced to death by the police who were looking for evidence of rabies.
