Unwavering Doberman Heroically Takes Down Four Cobras to Defend Owner’s Family
The unwavering bond between a doberman and his owner’s family proved unbreakable when the dog valiantly took on a life-and-death battle against four cobras. The heartwarming incident unfolded in the village of Sebekapur in the Gajapati district, 400 kilometers from Bhubaneswar. Dibakar Raita, the owner, expressed his astonishment at his loyal companion’s bravery, saying, “I’m amazed. He sacrificed everything to keep my family and I safe.” Overwhelmed by the dog’s selfless act, Dibakar added, “I will remember him till the day we die. May his soul rest in peace.”
The area is known for its mountain cobras, and during the monsoon season, various reptile species become more active due to water-filled nests. On a fateful night, the doberman stood guard at the front gate and fought off the four cobras attempting to enter the house. The dog’s heroic struggle lasted a considerable time and resulted in the safety of the human family.
Tragically, the dog collapsed after the battle due to the venomous nature of the snakes’ blood. The community paid tribute to the courageous canine by organizing a funeral procession and placing floral wreaths upon his ashes.
