Canadian man punches cougar attacking dog near fast food store
A Canadian man punched a cougar in the face to stop it assaulting his canine in a lush range close to a fast food store in Whitecourt, focal Alberta, the Royal Canadian Mounted Police (RCMP) said.
William Gibb, 31, from Red Deer, Alberta, had ceased at a Tim Hortons outlet, a prominent Canadian eatery network while driving 600-kilometer (372-miles) to Grand Prairie on Monday night and let his pooch out for a walk, Whitecourt RCMP Sergeant Tom Kalis said.
Soon after, Gibb heard his 80-pound (36-kg) female Husky called Sasha yowling in torment and found a cougar sticking her to the ground.
“I could see something wrapped around her and wasn’t certain what it was. I kept running over and punched it in what I believed was the head, and it upheld off and I understood it was a cougar,” Gibb, a circuit tester, told Reuters.
“I ventured over Sasha and charged at it swinging and shouting and requiring my sibling and mate to give a hand,” he included.
Gibb kept the cougar under control, which he said swiped at him a couple times, as he tended to his harmed puppy and called the police, before getting Sasha into his truck and pushing her away for medicinal consideration.
He said the police arrived five or after 10 minutes and, subsequent to counseling with fish and natural life officers, killed the cougar on account of the hazard it could assault another puppy or even people.
Gibb himself was not genuinely harmed, in spite of the fact that Sasha bit him on the hand as he was attempting to save her.
