BAKERSFIELD - A cat came to her best friend's rescue Tuesday when the young boy was attacked in his driveway in Southwest Bakersfield.
Surveillance video shows the boy playing on his bicycle when a dog sneaks up behind him and grabs his leg.
Tara, the family's cat, then rushes the attacking dog and chases it away.
The boy's mother told our sister station KERO-TV that the boy needed a few stitches, but he is doing fine this morning.
She also said the dog belonged to a neighbor and is now under observation.
