Teresa Barker said it would be funny if it didn’t happen to her family. The family’s 22-pound black and white Himalayan cat ‘Lux’ went wild at the family home, forcing them to barricade themselves in a bedroom and call 911 for help.
"It's only funny when it's not happening to you.(laugh) when this happens to you,” she said. “I assure you, you will do the same thing."
The Barkers when the cat clawed their 8-month-old baby in the face. They quickly swatted the cat away from the infant and it went wild – hissing, screeching and chasing the family around the house.
The parents barricaded themselves with the child and the family dog in a bedroom and tried to call animal control. When no one answered they called 911.
The police arrived and were able to contain the cat.
‘Lux’ has been acting normal ever since and the baby wasn’t seriously harmed.
While ‘Lux’ remains in the Barkers home, he may well be looking for a new home very soon.Tue, 11 Mar 2014 08:11:13 -0700

In what could be bad news for bike trail riders, a Supreme Court decision Monday put hundreds of miles of trails across the country at risk.
In an 8-1 vote, the court ruled that land once used by the government for railroad lines should revert back to the original owners once the lines are abandoned. A federal program had been converting many of the lines into bike trails. (Via Bloomberg)
The court found that the government didn't own the land, but just had easements on it — that's permission to use someone else's land — and those easements had expired decades ago.
Wyoming man Marvin Brandt originally sued after the Forest Service moved to convert an old rail line crossing his 83-acre property into bike trails. Before the Supreme Court's decision, Brandt had lost twice in the lower circuits. (Via Google Earth)
In the majority opinion, Chief Justice John Roberts said the legal question had been settled in 1942, in a similar case that ruled land ownership reverted back to the original owner. (Via SCOTUSblog)
But Justice Sonia Sotomayor, the lone dissent, criticized the majority's interpretation of that case, and said the court tarnished "the legality of thousands of miles of former rights of way that the public now enjoys as means of transportation and recreation." (Via Bloomberg)
The ruling could jeopardize almost 1,400 miles of trails facilitated by the Rails to Trails program and will set an anti-trail precedent for 80 other cases pending across the nation. (Via Rails to Trails Conservancy)
But according to The Wall Street Journal, Brandt's lawyer says the trail expansion at the center of the case isn't exactly high traffic, with his client only seeing around 50 bikers on the existing trail since 2006, and adding, "The idea that a bunch of people is going to come out there and start riding that trail is asinine."
The justices did not address the lingering question about exactly how much land is at stake, but during oral arguments back in Janurary, Justice Stephen Breyer noted the government keeps poor track of its easements, saying, "For all I know, there is some right-of-way that goes through people's houses."
