Vicious: The dog attacks unaware boy before cat intervenes

The following surveillance footage shows the moment a family's cat saves a young boy from a vicious dog attack.

It was filmed yesterday in Southwest Bakersville, North Carolina. The child was blissfully playing on his tricycle in his driveway when a neighbour's dog escaped through a side entrance. 

The dog notices the young boy before it makes a darting move in his direction, latching onto his leg and dragging him from the tricycle. 

The family cat quickly leaps into action, attacks and chases the dog away. 

The child's father posted the video on YouTube and said: "Thankfully, my son is fine!"
