India: King Cobra saves puppies from death

7

PUNJAB – Some time ago, near Punjab, India, two puppies fell into a well by accident. Their owner looked for them, and he heard that mother dog is barking near the nearby well. He came and saw the pups. Luckily for them, well almost had no water, except for one part, which was also full of mud.

The man wanted to get them, when he saw big snake. It was King Cobra,  one of the deadliest snakes in India. He thought that the snake will eat the pups, but he was wrong. It seemed that Cobra didn’t let puppies to go to this sludge, where they would surely drown in mud.

The owner of the puppies called for help, but snake experts were far away, so he waited. It took two days for help to come, and during that time, Cobra didn’t let puppies to die, nor have attacked them in any way. Men pulled out the snake and puppies without any problem. Pups went to their mother, and the snake was released into the forest.

When you hear of a story like this, you got to ask yourself: ”How come that one snake, considered to be an ultimate hunter and killer, can have mercy?” Wise men say that we can learn more from animals, than from ourselves, and this is just one example of it.

  1. Two days isn’t enough time for fresh puppy to ripen properly. If they hadn’t been snatched from the snake’s pantry, they were probably on next week’s menu.

    • No…the snake was trapped in the well also, and the puppies brought the assistance needed for everyone to escape. Our perception of “danger” always overrides the idea that animals have foresight and feelings, and are fully aware and capable; they just happen not to be human.

    • Deadweasel; why not think on the positive side, that the snake was indeed protecting, let us this image believe that a better world is awaiting.

  2. Wouldn’t that snake be freezing its tail off and probably lacking the energy to attack+eat two (comparatively) large animals? Also correct me if I’m wrong but reptiles lack the ability to feel compassion. Its not just being a stand up guy. It probably just felt that its best chance of survival was to wait and conserve energy.

  3. A KING COBRA CAN KILL A COBRA. A TITANOBOA CAN KILL A T-REX. SOME PEOPLE THINK SNAKES ARE STUPID. I LIKE SNAKES BECAUSE THEY ARE BEAUTIFUL ANIMALS…….

  4. Hindus around the world worship the cobra as it is one of our very powerful Gods and If u don’t harm it, it wont harm you. the snake was God sent to protect the puppies. remember animals only attack if they sense fear!!! and yes I believe that it was God sent to help them all out. I just adore dogs and I am glad they were kept safe and not left to die. God saved them and protected them :-)
