A bobcat walks into a bar......

A rabid bobcat walked into a roadside bar in Cottonwood, Arizona. What happened next was not a joke but "pandemonum," including two or three minutes of grown men jumping on top of pool tables and bar stools to get out of the way. When it was over, two people were scratched and bleeding, and the bobcat was gunned down by police in the parking lot. "You've seen the cartoon "Tasmanian Devil? That's a bobcat with rabies," said bar patron Ted Bell. The 20 patrons started scrabling towards the back door. But so did the bobcat, which was not looking for a way out. That's when RC Collins jumped in to protect two women in its path. "That's when he got me. I punched it in the face real good," Collins said. The animal then ran out the front door and was shot by the arriving police.

The news story has a video of it!

So, I have to admit I was kind of hoping for a punch line at the end. I've seen worse things walk into a bar by the way.

I wouldn't want to tangle with a bob cat. AZ is one tough place my niece from AZ met up with a rabid fox and was on TV and the Letterman show.
