62-Year-Old Man Killed Bobcat with Bare Hands!

Don't ever mess with Dale Rippy. The 62-year-old Florida man fought a bobcat and killed it with his bare hands!

Having grown up on a farm, Rippy said he knew the bobcat would attack when it didn’t run away after seeing him.

“When it growled, I knew it was going to jump and bite me,” he said.

That's nothing, I swallow a dozen live giant octopus for breakfast. Every day. I also stop bullets with my bare hands. Also, I fly. I predict the future and I poop diamonds, already cut, none of them less than 7 carats.

More seriously, the guy must have a lot of self control to know what to do in that situation. Most would panic and run. He simply took a few scratches while he was choking the beast. Makes me a little uneasy.

Bobcat had rabies. That's why he attacked.

Meg: a bobcat is not a house cat. Different species, much bigger, fiercer, and completely wild. Normally they wouldn't bother people, but when one has rabies, it isn't going to think rationally. No, it isn't a leopard or a mountain lion, but a sick one that is feeling mean for really tear you up. Kudos to the guy for keeping his senses. Google the news recently for a guy in Israel who recently wrestled and held down for 20 minutes until game warden arrived a leopard that jumped into his bedroom. The leopard was hungry, but none the worse for wear. That guy must be a serious badass.

Straight talk from Sid.
