Phillips told the Athens Banner-Herald newspaper that she did not scream for help until she thought the animal was dead.

Phillips said the almost 40-pound bobcat then landed on her chest and charged at her face.

"I grabbed it by the shoulders and pushed it back away from me ... and I took it down", she says. "As soon as it took the first step, I was in trouble and I knew it", said Phillips,".it leaped on me. After that her son came with a gun and knife and went bludgeoning the animal, which of course lay motion less.

"I thought, 'Not today.' There was no way I was going to die", Phillips told the paper. But he's biting the daylights out of me and I'm thinking, 'I can't let him go. Her 5-year-old granddaughter was sleeping inside her home during the life-or-death struggle in her front yard.
