Here is another reason why animals are awesome.  Animals are amazing at detecting evil.  Some just generally know when a person is even and it is not any different in this case.  Mabeline saved a 17-year old girl from a sexual predator.

The 17-year old girl was walking Mabeline  as a part of her volunteer services for the Friends of Strays in St. Petersburg, Florida, when Michael Bacon a sexual predator violently attacked her behind a building.  Mabeline went into action and chased him off.  Luckily police tracked him down and arrested him.

This is just another reason why it is good to have a pet!
