Dog fights off mountain lion
A brave Jack Russell dog fought off a mountain lion prowling on his owner's farm.
Jack - who weighs just 17lb - discovered the 150lb big cat on his master Chad Strenge's farm in Colman, Moody County, South Dakota, and attacked it.
Chad heard his pet pooch barking and came outside to discover the predatory animal - also known as a cougar or puma - cowering up a tree as Jack stood at the bottom barking loudly.
He quickly grabbed his shotgun to blast the cougar out of the tree before chasing after it and shooting it dead.
Chad is very proud of his heroic mutt and believes he decided to attack the mountain lion because he hates all cats.
He told The Argus Leader newspaper: "He trees cats all the time. I suppose he figured it was just a cat."
