ABILENE, Texas (KTAB/KRBC) – A homeless man and his 2 huskies traveling through Abilene on a cross-country trek were attacked by a bobcat Thursday afternoon.

Georgie Cutright told KTAB and KRBC he was traveling down Arnold Blvd when he noticed a cat lying the in grass. 

He thought it was dead, but when he got closer, the cat, which wasn’t your average housecat, jumped up and attacked his dogs, Sarah and Lobos. 

Cutright says his dogs were unharmed and performed a counter-attack on the bobcat. 

The cat survived but is in a great deal of pain and was administered a tranquilizer shot by Abilene’s Animal Control.

Animal Control is currently unaware of anyone in the area able to rehabilitate the bobcat. Anyone with information on a possible rescue operation is asked to call the Abilene Animal Control at (325) 698-0085.

Cutright and his huskies are on their way to California after embarking from Tennessee 8 months ago. 

They hope to use their travels to write and book and raise awareness for homelessness.
