A band of wild cats pounced on a French woman this week and attacked her as she walked her pet dog. The traumatised woman was reportedly left with a gashed artery and bites to her arms and legs in what a vet said was an unprecedented assault.

Wow, now that's just plain crazy.  Almost sounds like that lady took a walk through pet cemetery or something. Weird that the cats hung out in a pack.

Holy Crap! That is nuts. I knew there was a reason I disliked cats. Maybe it's just those damned French cats.

I don´t dislike cats, but if the attack was non provoked, the whole gang should get caught / shot, human safety is first

I agree with the vet this is unprecedented.
We just had a woman savagely attacked by 15 dogs in downtown Houston  a day or two ago, while heading for the bus stop. She is was in very serious condition as she suffered a heart attack from the attack. Not sure how she is today.
Dog attacks are not so uncommon.

She was walking a dog.  I am guessing that may have had something to do with it.  Perhaps dogs had attacked them at some point and that set them off.

Feral cats definitely form 'prides' like lions.

My baby son and I were attacked by a cat in the house way back when... it was really scary and did quite a bit of damage, and that was only 1 cat.

Embrace the impossible.

Did your little boy get hurt?...

I saw a video once of a lady in a supermarket, she was browsing through some things, and this cat was lurking through the shelving and attacked her.. Her face was covered in scratches and she was shaken up.. I can't recall who removed the cat, but I remember how fierce this tabby was..

My own two cats are not trusted...I normally have to watch them when my baby son is about.. and keep his little hands away from them..

I was sitting on the floor with my son lying across my lap. The cat basically grabbed his head and scratched and bit him. Split his eyelid open - I was hysterical thinking it punctured his eye.. there was so much blood -- and sliced him up pretty badly. Shredded my thigh and bit a chunk out of my leg. When I turned away and got on my knees to scramble to my feet, it attacked my foot and bit through the bottom of it. My foot, ankle and thigh were covered in deep scratches that scarred.  This all happened in the matter of a minute or two until I got on my feet and the cat bolted into the back room.

He's 15 now and has a very rakish scar across his eyelid and eyebrow.  ;)

I love cats, but if I would be in that situation I would be `kicking for a field-goal´ and wringing some necks. They were cats not lions.

I had a small, very tame cat that used to like to walk around the edge of the tub while I was taking a bath. It slipped into the water one day and tore me up pretty good in a matter of seconds. People don't realize how razor sharp their claws are until they are wrapped around you. To think of that happening to a baby is terrifying!

Oh my word, that was one nasty cat, your son is lucky he didn't loose an eye..That must have been a horrible experience, especially for your baby boy at the time..
