Man went camping with family and friends and a dog. While making breakfast a rabid mountain lion* jumped out and attacked the dog.
Man defended dog with the first thing at hand - the skillet - and won.
* rabies test came back positive the following monday. Good thing they kept the dog up-to-date on his rabies shots. Pooch is still going to be in quarantine for 45 days but, since he has scratches & gashes that need time to heal that's not a bad thing.
Hope he heals quickly.
