Nobody will mess with this lady after they hear her story! Woman VS. bobcat! Earlier this month in Georgia, DeDe Phillips came face-to-face with a rabid bobcat. Having grown up in the country, she knew she was in for a fight to the death. “I took it straight to the ground and started inching my hands up to its throat. I knew that was the only way I was getting out of this.” After she choked out the cat, she had her son stab it "four or five times" to make sure it was "completely dead."
