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.
