Pregnant pit-bull sacrifices her ‘children’ to protect her owner’s daughter
We all know that a dog is man’s most devoted buddy. Pitbull Nong Horm, a two-year-old dog, proved this once more by laying down his life to save his owner from a harmful snake.
The cobra is one of the world’s deadliest snakes. Its venom is so potent that it may kill an elephant in just three hours.
Mr. Suriyan Janket posted photos on Facebook earlier this week of his deceased pit bull laying close to a dead snake in Pathum Thani.
Nong Horm was laying next to the 4ft long snake in the front yard, and its owner Buncherd was lying next to the dying pit bull, which had been bitten multiple times around her.
When “Nong Hom,” a 2-year-old pit bull, came across the cobra slithering near the family’s rooster coop, she was three months pregnant. As a consequence of her instincts, she got into a struggle with the unwanted visitor and was bitten in the month, culminating in the catastrophe.
Mr. Janket told Amarin TV that no one was home at the time of the incident. Even their second pitbull, who lived with them, went outdoors to play.
His neighbor informed him that they had discovered a dead snake in front of their house when he returned home in the evening. So he rushed over to Nong Hom, who was already dead at that point.
Mr. Janket is seen holding Nong Hom’s body on the ground in one of the photos, showing how deeply he loved her. He also stated that his daughter did not take this well, as she continued to cry and embrace her deceased furry buddy during the whole evening.
Since then, the post has been shared over 16,000 times and has garnered over 2,500 comments, most of which have expressed their heartfelt sympathies to the family. Many of them had their own canine companions.
It isn’t the first time a dog has been praised for fighting off a snake.
