Edward Tuliper didn't typically receive visitors least of
all wild animals in the wee hours of the night, but that's exactly
what happened to the Florence, Vt., resident one Sunday." I thought,
"Oh, jeez, the dog's getting into a porcupine,"" said Tuliper of the
commotion that erupted shortly after 3 a.m. in his front yard. It
turned out that the family pet had cornered a rabid, 40-lb. female
bobcat by an entranceway. When Tuliper's wife, Linda, opened a door
to check on the family pet, named Max, she was nearly overrun by the
crazed cat. Both she and the couple's 13-year-old daughter fought
the animal for control of the door. Meanwhile, Edward Tuliper
attempted to dispatch the big cat with a machete. Finally, with help
from his daughter, Tuliper latched onto a pistol and fired several
shots killing the cat. Authorities later determined the animal was
rabid. Fortunately, no member of the family including Max the dog
was badly hurt.
