In an incredible video, a family’s pet dogs go above and beyond to protect their owners from a deadly cobra.
The four dogs circle the 8.2ft long venomous snake after it slithered into their garden in Phitsanoluk, Thailand.
Nipping at the cobra with their teeth, you hear a woman yelling out instructions to the dogs in the background, and commanding her dogs to keep the cobra away from the snake.
While luckily, none of the four dogs were hurt, this was a very dangerous situation for everyone involved.
This type of deadly cobra has a reputation across southeast Asia and India, and they are known to grow up to 18.8ft long. A single bite from the snake can be fatal if it’s not treated immediately with the correct anti-venom, and the woman heard in the video knew how deadly this situation could have been.
Since she’s used to dealing with deadly intruders, she was prepared to rush her protective dogs to a veterinary hospital immediately if they had been attacked by the snake.
According to the Mirror, “King cobras tend to avoid humans and prey on other snakes, lizards, and rodents.”
