Not every hero in The Libertarian Republic need be human. Tara Triantafilo, for example, is a cat – one with a dog-like sense of loyalty to her owners.
As a young boy played in his Bakersfield driveway on Tuesday, a vicious dog snuck up behind him, tearing at his leg, knocking him down and dragging him across the ground. Tara dashed into action, tackling the dog and then chasing it away. Security cameras captured the entire ordeal.
The boy required stitches, but mother Erika Triantafilo tells 23ABC that he is now doing fine.
