A Good Samaritan was attacked by a bobcat in Anthem today when he intervened in an attack by the bobcat on a man walking his dog. The bobcat had been chasing the man and his German Shepherd.

A video taken by a bystander shows the Good Samaritan grabbing the erratic bobcat. The bobcat bit the man who was forced to swing the animal off his arm.

The bobcat was later captured by Arizona Game and Fish personnel and tested for rabies.
