A Slovakian woman couldn't believe her eyes when her pointer dogs were attacked - by a kung fu guinea pig.
Marta Domotorova, of Hradok, says the pint-sized ninja suddenly attacked her Hungarian pointers during a stroll on heathland near her home.
The curious hounds had spotted the guinea pig and trotted over to investigate - but it scared them off with a series of spinning kicks and leaps.
Mrs Domotorova said: "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.
"But then they got pretty scared when the guinea pig started its kung fu chops."
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.
