Sixteen year old Levi Sadler knew something was terribly wrong when he heard his Labrador Retriever make a horrible scream outside of the family home in Belcarra, B.C. He looked out his window and saw Daisy being attacked by a cougar. Springing into action, Levi jumped out of the window to try and scare the big cat away.
He told CBC News the experience was frightening. "It was terrifying, like a scream you hear in movies, coming from a dog," he said. "When I looked over, the cougar had its mouth completely around her neck. All I saw were Daisy's legs kicking and screaming."
Levi managed to escape by throwing himself back through the window he had crawled through, but knocked his head on the floor. "My blood was pumping so much. I wouldn't have even cared if I was hurt. I was trying to get Daisy out of there," he said.
The cougar finally ran off when Levi's dad came running out after hearing the screams.
Daisy survived the attack. She was cut up pretty badly and required 100 stitches, but is recovering with her family thanks to Levi's heroic actions.
