WATCH: Hero Black Cat Saves Dog From Coyote Attack
January 8, 2024
Today's good news story comes from Edmond, Oklahoma.
A black cat named Binx emerged as the unlikely hero when she valiantly defended the family dog, Oakley, from a pack of coyotes in their backyard.
The incident unfolded as Oakley was enjoying some outdoor time when a pair of coyotes closed in, posing a serious threat to the small dog. The first coyote attacked, with a second one on the approach.
Without hesitation, Binx, the family's black cat, leaped into action, fearlessly confronting the coyotes and chasing them away.
"[Binx] jumped down and scared them off, it was the craziest thing ever," owner Lane Dyer said.
Binx's quick thinking and fearless intervention provided Oakley with enough time to escape the danger and seek refuge inside the house. However, the small dog sustained injuries during the attack, with wounds on her chest and side that were described as "gushing blood."
The Dyers rushed her to the animal hospital, where veterinarians discovered the severity of her injuries. There were initial fears that Oakley might have to undergo leg amputation due to the extent of the damage.
Fortunately, the resilient pup underwent successful treatment, including stitches and a splint for her leg, and miraculously retained full use of her limb.
Oakley in recovery
While Oakley was in recovery, the Dyers turned to security camera footage to piece together the events leading to the heroic encounter.
Lane expressed gratitude for the security cameras, saying, "It was inspiring to see just our little outdoor cat jump at two coyotes that were attacking this little dog who she loves and run them off."
