Talk about love for the family. A doberman stood his ground in a fight to the death, killing four cobras that may have threatened his owner, Dibakar Raita’s family. The family, who live in Sebekapur village of Gajapati district, 400 kilometers from Bhubaneswar, is still in shock.
“I’m stunned. He has made the ultimate sacrifice for my family and me. I shall remember him till the day we die. “I beg to God, may his soul rest in peace,” an emotional Dibakar told reporters.
Mountains cobras have been recognized as the snakes. Many of the reptiles’ species have been spotted in the area, particularly during the monsoon season, when the rains fill their nests with water.
The four snakes were trying to enter the family’s home on Monday evening when they were confronted by the Doberman who was protecting the entrance gate. The dog attacked the snakes as they attempted to flee to higher terrain. According to witnesses, the fight lasted a long time and a lot of blood was lost.
The dog did not stop until each of the four snakes had been killed, preventing them from threatening the human family. The dog collapsed minutes after the fight due to the poison in its blood from the snake snakes.
Before burial the dog, the locals put flower wreaths on its remains and staged a funeral procession.
