Vicious was inducted into the Purina Animal Hall of Fame for saving the life of Angie Prime
Vicious, a 12-year-old Border Collie/Labrador cross came to the rescue of her owner and two puppies when a wild animal entered their home in Trail, British Columbia.
On a warm summer evening last August, Angie Prime was relaxing in her living room with Vicious, and her two puppies. Like she had done in the past, Angie had her lights turned off so as not to attract insects, and left the sliding door open to the backyard so her pets could go in and out.
Suddenly, Angie sensed another presence in the room. She turned and found herself face-to-face with a cougar. Realizing she had nowhere to go, Angie put her arms up to shield her face and screamed as the cougar pounced on her. From across the room, Vicious sprang into action, launching herself at the cougar. The cat disengaged and headed towards the open door.
Vicious followed protectively, chasing the cougar out towards the green belt at the back of the property. Not long after, Vicious came back fortunately unharmed. Conservation officers arrived at the scene and they agreed that Angie was extremely lucky to be alive. If it wasn't for Vicious' quick action and dedication, Angie would have met a very different fate.
Vicious was inducted into the Purinal Animal Hall of Fame on Monday, for her courage and devotion.
