Venomous cobras are common in India, a country where snakes kill more than 45,000 people a year.
But when a group of the deadly snakes reached the home of Dibakar Raita in the small village of Sebekapur on July 11, man’s best friend was able to prevent a catastrophe.
Dibakar’s Doberman, purchased just a few months before, was guarding the perimeter of the property that night when he found a group of cobras outside the home.
The dog repeatedly bit and clawed at the snakes, even as they bit him with their poisonous venom. The Doberman killed each snake successively but, by the time he had staved off the attack, the damage had been done. The dog quickly died from the venom that had filled its body.
“I’m shocked. He has made the supreme sacrifice for me and my family.
I will remember him till our death. I pray God: May his soul rest in peace,” Dibakar told journalists after the incident. Dibakar’s grief was matched by hundred of Indians who live in the Gajapati District.
Bearing wreaths and flowers, a large crowd participated in a funeral procession and burial ceremony for the Doberman who had kept his family safe.
A canine has actually sacrified his life to conserve 8 members of his master’s household. The male pet coming from the Doberman types combated a bloody fight with 4 mountain cobras for hours and eliminated all of them. Minutes after he emerged triumphant, the pet passed away due to the toxic results of duplicated stings by the snakes.
According to reports, the mountain snakes late on Monday night attempted to slip into your house of Dibakar Raita of Sebekapur town under Raygada block of Gajapati district, almost 400 km from here.
The pet which was safeguarding your house at the entryway prevented them which resulted in a strong battle amongst them. Blood might be seen spilling onto the patio area as the family pet animal and snakes battled.
Dibakar had actually brought the Doberman a couple of months back. “I’m stunned. He has actually made the supreme sacrifice for me and my household. I will remember him till our death. I hope God – Might his soul rest in peace,” stated a mentally subdued Dibakar.
Numerous individuals of close-by locations hurried to the town as the news spread. The villagers laid flower wreaths on the body of the killed pet and held a funeral procession prior to burying it.
Found on a foothill and surrounded by shrubs, Sebakpur town frequently experiences wild animals and reptiles from the regional hills slipping into property homes and animal sheds.
