Phillip's saw the bobcat under her SUV.
She believes if she hadn't killed the rabid animal, it would have killed her.
"I thought, 'not today, '" she told the newspaper. "There was no way I was going to die". She didn't call out for help until she thought the big cat was dead as she didn't want her young granddaughter to venture out into the vicinity of the wildcat.
The attack led to Phillips suffering a broken finger and numerous bite and claw wounds to her hands, arms, chest and legs.
