House Cat Traps Owners

PORTLAND, Ore. (AP) -- Not often do emergency workers get a 911 call reporting that a family's vicious cat has trapped them in their bedroom.

That's what happened Sunday in Portland, Oregon.

Police say a couple called 911, saying their 22-pound house cat had attacked their baby, and they had locked themselves in their bedroom with the child and their dog.

The child wasn't hurt.

Officers used a dog snare to capture the cat, which the owners say has a history of violence. And the cat is still with its owners. is happy to provide a forum for commenting and discussion. Please respect and abide by the house rules:
