Incredible footage from local surveillance videos show a young child riding a tricycle in front of his house in California when he was suddenly attacked by a vicious dog, which bit his leg and tried to pull him off the bike.

At almost the same time the family cat Tara leapt into action, jumping on the dog and chasing it off before it could inflict further injuries on the boy.

Father, Roger Triantafilo says that his four year old son Jeremy had to have stitches and is doing fine. The local Bakersfield police confirmed that the dog will be quarantined for 10 days and then euthanized. 

What a hero this cat is and shows us how much our family cats are capable of love and protection.

Here is the video footage.
