A Georgia grandmother strangled a rabid bobcat to death with her bare hands.

After strangling the cat and finding that it was lifeless, Phillips asked her daughter in law to ring up 911. I took it straight to the ground and started inching my hands up to its throat.

DeDe Phillips' first thought when a bobcat attacked in her driveway in Georgia was "I wasn't dying today", she says.

Phillips says she grew up in the country, where her father-in-law was once a trapper of bobcats. After that her son came with a gun and knife and went bludgeoning the animal, which of course lay motion less. "There was no way I was going to die".

To add to the terror of the attack, her 5-year-old granddaughter was sleeping inside her home.

The courageous grandmother didn't escape the attack unscathed, however, and is now recovering from a broken finger and several bite and claw wounds to her hands, arms, chest and legs. In this photo, a rescued bobcat waits to be fed at The Wild Animal Sanctuary in Keenesburg, Colorado, Oct. 20, 2011.

Major manufacturers such as Honda Motor Co and Mitsubishi Motors Corp resumed operations at their plants on Monday afternoon. Japan's weather agency warned people in western Japan to be prepared for another big natural disaster in the next few days.

These animal rescuers found out that the kittens they had rescued were actually bobcat cubs.

"I'm very lucky", she said.

"It never budged, so I knew it was completely dead", she said.

Phillips' cousin set up a Fundly.com account to raise money for her medical expenses, including shots which are expected to cost around $10K. According to authorities, the bobcat was rabid and Phillips will now have to undergo a series of expensive and painful shots.

"She is a lady who would give you the shirt off her back and will drop whatever she is doing to come help!" the page says.
