“A cougar crashed through a glass door to try to eat a tiny dog—and ate a face full of bear spray instead. The attack took place late last week in the basement bedroom of a three-story mountain home near Santa Barbara, California. “[It was an] unbelievable, unreal situation,” the homeowner Ted Adams told Noozhawk. “[The cougar] was a good-sized animal. It wasn’t a youngster. It was a big cat.”
Adams, who’s lived in the Painted Cave community above Santa Barbara since 1967, was being visited by his sister Lee Larsen, who brought her dog, Buddy, with her. On the evening of Wednesday, December 22, Buddy, a 25-pound mixed breed, repeatedly barked at a basement door. Larsen checked on the dog but didn’t see anything unusual and returned upstairs. Then there was a huge crash from downstairs. The wild cat had charged inside the house, shattered the glass door, and snatched Buddy up in its mouth. After seeing the cougar, Adams went for his gun and ammo in an upstairs safe.
His wife, Tracy, was faster. She went for bear spray.”
