Don’t Mess With a Rock Hammer [Offbeat News]
Admittedly, this story has very little to due with actual, real geology. Regardless, it is pretty crazy! A couple hiking in Arizona were attacked by a rabid bobcat. After initially fighting the cat off, it returned and tried to attack again. Rich Thompson, who was hiking with his wife at the time, pulled out his rock hammer and ended up killing the animal with it.
â€œItâ€™s very sad,â€ Thompson said. â€œThis poor kitty cat was deranged by its disease-riddled brain. I love the native cats. It was terrible to have to kill it.â€
After receiving initial treatments at a hospital, the couple went with a state wildlife manager to retrieve the dead bobcat.
What on earth would you name your rock hammer after something like that?
