Roger Mundell, Jr. entered his garage one morning only to be confronted by a seemingly rabid bobcat that had gained entry through an open door. The bobcat attacked Mundell, biting him in the face and clawing at his arms. Mundell was able to escape the garage and thought the bobcat was still trapped inside. Before he could warn his 15-year-old nephew, Michael, of the danger, the bobcat was spotted nearby. The cat lunged at Michael grabbing him by the arm. As Mundell tried to pull the cat off of his nephew, his wife, Cindy, then retrieved a firearm and handed it to Mundell who shot the bobcat. The family was treated for injuries and vaccinated for rabies. It was later determined that the bobcat was, in fact, rabid. (Spencer New Leader, Amherst, MA, 1/18/13)

The Armed Citizen Extra

A clerk at a Casper hotel used a gun she kept in her lunchbox to thwart a robbery at her business early Friday, police said. The worker pulled out the gun after two men with covered faces approached her and said they were going to rob the hotel. The would-be robbers ran from the building and remain at large, said Sgt. Deahn Amend. No shots were fired and no one was injured in the incident. (The Casper Star Tribune, Casper, Wyoming, 1/5/13)

From The Armed Citizen Archives

November 1959: Virgil Ruskin got out of bed and returned to his Columbus, Ohio, restaurant on a hunch that the place might be burglarized. The restaurant had been broken into three times in recent weeks so Ruskin, armed with a cal. .45 pistol, hid inside until an intruder broke in through a window. The proprietor fired one shot and the burglar meekly surrendered. (The Columbus Citizen)
