the action began one recent day when she looked outside her window and saw the bobcat lying on its side with the head of her 20-year-old cat, Smudge, in its mouth.
Luce ran out the door, grabbed an aluminum snow shovel and pushed it down on the bobcat's neck. But it held on tight.
"Then I took hold of its head with my hand and pulled on its tail, and Smudge popped out," she said.
Mildred is needed in WI to bop a few PEOPLE over the head with a shovel.
