The Daily Grind Video

Let’s settle this debate once and for all, shall we?

Dog lovers are in for a not-so-pleasant surprise once they watch this video of a vicious pooch attacking a little boy on a bike. But it’s what happens after the dog, unprovoked, grabs the toddler’s leg that’s surprising the internet and making cat ladies everywhere give the world an “I told you so” face.

After the boy is attacked in his Bakersfield, California driveway, the family cat Tara jumps to the rescue, running the dog off and making sure he doesn’t return.

The encounter was all caught on surveillance camera, which the boy’s father, Roger Triantafilo, uploaded to YouTube to show off the kitty’s skills.

“My cat defends my son during a vicious dog attack and runs the dog off before he can do additional damage,” Triantafilo wrote in the video’s description. “Thankfully, my son is fine!”

The boy, who was not named, did need a few stitches from the attack, but will recover.

And the debate over which is better — cats or dogs — can now be put to rest. For now at least. Watch the crazy video above.
