I'm surprised the cat kept going for the dog.

My money is always on the cat.

Poor doggie.

"I wanna play! I wanna play! I wa-- NO! NO I DON'T WANNA PLAY!"

I kept waiting for the part where the aforementioned dog shows up.

I saw a very large rat being chased by a cat though. That part was interesting.

Schadenfreude ist die schoenste Freude: I saw a very large rat being chased by a cat though.


My money was on the cat prior to seeing what the "dog" looked like. Afterwards there was no question.

/That's not a real dog.

Never underestimate the ferocity of a pissed off pussycat.

That video could have been much shorter. And LiveLeak's video player blows.

You don't run from a cat. They're hard-wired to chase.

I get annoyed with in-site "Wee kan play veedeeos!" video players. I'd gotten used to YouTube's "just play the damn thing" simplicity that I've lost the patience to wait a minute to load a 30-second clip.

Bonus points if there's a 30-second skipless ad that loads first. Those make Chari get all stabby.

I could actually hear Ennio Moricone playing in the back of my head . . .
And when the cat looks over at the camera, it's like the three-way standoff from The Good, The Bad And The Ugly, with the camera as a first person view.
 
2011-08-25 12:26:26 PM
WTF, did Michael J. Fox take over the camera at the minute mark?
 
2011-08-25 12:40:33 PM
Bravo. The cameraman wasn't shaking like M.J. Fox and the audio didn't have anyone blathering on.

I even liked how you could hear the wind blowing in the mic. It added a feeling of desolation to the narrative.

Dogs only win these confrontations when they are much bigger than the cat.

Seriously, male mountain lions come in at around 150+ pounds, find a 150+ pound dog or even a wolf, and see if it wants to play with a mountain lion.
 
2011-08-25 01:09:02 PM
Ha! That dog got its ass kicked.

What's the deal with the circle of flowers on the lawn? Was it outlining a grave?

If you didn't see the video start shaking at the minute mark, YOU ARE MICHAEL J. FOX.

/still an awesome video though

I'm more impressed that they managed to resurrect Lou Gehrig to be the cameraman.

The Rhodesian Ridgeback is a dog breed developed in Southern Africa, where it was used (among other things) to hunt lions. This is most likely why this dog is known for its bravery. Its European forebears can be traced to the early pioneers of the Cape Colony of southern Africa, who crossed their dogs with the semi-domesticated, ridged hunting dogs of the Khoikhoi.

I was wondering that too.

The flower pattern in the grass, marks the grave of Archie Stanton.

It appeared from the accents (of course I may be too stupid to correctly guess said accent), that the dog was French. That certainly explains the outcome.

/even the dogs are cheese eating surrender monkeys

So it went one on one with a lion with absolutely no help from humans at all right?

Right? This 80~ pound dog is going to do something, by itself, to a 300-500 pound lion?

There a couple of breeds of dogs I can think of that were used to hunt apex predators. Both breeds that come to mind, the Rhodesian Ridgeback, and the Irish Wolf Hound, were either used as bait/distraction while their owner killed the predator, or they hunted in packs greatly outnumbering their prey.

But yeah, I don't think any domesticated breed of dog could handle a lion, bear, wolf (well, maybe a wolf), one-on-one.

But, I could be wrong. After all, the Dogo Argentino was bred to hunt wild boar, and I've heard they can take one down solo. But they usually hunt in packs as well.

That dog was neither big nor tough.

I had a black Labrador (Hudson) who would tangle with one particular cat in the neighborhood. Surprisingly he was great with all other animals. I once saw him give some of his dog treat to a squirrel .....very odd.

Anyway, for awhile, this cat would come fark with my Lab once or twice a week. Hudson would get all kinds of clawed up because this cat was a ball of fury and claws. The vet bills were stacking up so I started to look out for the cat and shot at it a couple times (but missed). One day I hear the loudest cry in the world; I went running outside to see if a child was hurt and I see that damn cat barely moving in our back yard. Sure enough, here comes Hudson strolling up all bloody, but with the happiest grin on his face.

Moral of the story: Don't fark with cats unless you want the shiat scratched out of you. Even the little ones half a dogs size can mess them up.


*Warning - Sad ending for cat lovers*
I put the cat out of his misery. There was no way a vet could save him...Hudson must have got a hold of his neck.
 
2011-08-25 03:22:14 PM
You'll often see videos online of cats "beating up" dogs more than twice their size. This is because of the important difference between cats and dogs: dogs are not psychopathic and often do not maim other animals to pass the time.

I like spaghetti westerns
I like the way the boots are all reverbed out walking across the hardwood floors.
In fact, everything's got that big reverb sound.

Well what'll I do now? Go to sleep. Pull the pud? We need new pornos. Well, I guess I'm still writing...

Funny video, though I would argue the 'big tough' in the headline.
Had an outdoor cat growing up that would fark up the neighbors dog that was twice his size if the dog came into the yard. Cats indeed are psychotic.

I have a Rhodesian Ridgeback. Beautiful, loving, sporty dog but there is no way they can fight a lion. The reality is more like 20-30 of them all keeping a lion at bay by barking and causing commotion while a hunter picks up his double rifle and fires from 50 yards away.

Would you like to meet my puppy Kamali? http://vimeo.com/5209946

This. I always feel sorry for dogs in this situation.

Twice the cat looked over at the guy with the camera and "I'm working here" came across clear as a ball peen hammer to the forehead.

A good ad blocker can solve that issue.

We had a cat when I was a kid who taught several dogs, big mean dogs, that crossing our back yard was a great way to get your nose torn open. And she was the nicest, gentlest cat you ever saw.

I'd trade 10,000 fark posts to have her back for just one hour.
 
2011-08-25 07:07:16 PM
One look at the cat's tail told me the cameraman was wise to go behind the car.

The cat was bound to be the last one standing, regardless of foes.
