Locals in Hradok, Slovakia, are living in fear of a kung fu guinea pig. The pint-sized ninja terrified dog walker Marta Domotorova when it attacked her Hungarian pointer dogs during a stroll on heathland near her home.
With a series of spinning kicks and leaps the fearless rodent saw off both the hapless hounds as they tried to play with it. "Bona started barking and Meggie wanted to sniff it.
"I guess it got pretty scared although both dogs are harmless and just wanted to play," said Marta. But then they got pretty scared when the guinea pig started its kung fu chops," she added.
Local wildlife experts believe the furious furball is a household pet that's either escaped or been abandoned. "It's not the first time we've heard of this. These creatures are usually docile family pets but when they feel threatened they will fight for their lives like any animal that thinks it's been cornered," explained one.
