After finding a deadly black mamba hidden beneath their couch, an intelligent rottweiler saved his owner from a dangerous position.
The close bond between a dog and a human has been exquisitely shown in numerous stories. But, sometimes, something fresh appears, much to the joy of animal lovers.
Recently, a South African dog showed bravery by defending its owner from a dangerous mamba snake hiding under the couch. A fascinating instance included a Rottweiler dog barking at the couch and pushing its owner away whenever he attempted to sit down for days.
After watching this, the dog’s owner paid heed to what the animal was signaling and searched beneath the couch, where he found a dangerous black mamba snake hiding.
Nick Evans, a snake catcher from South Africa, shared this scary story on Facebook, narrating the incident and following rescue.
“A man in Escombe, Queensburgh, thought it was strange that his Rottweiler was pushing him away from his couch, which he sits on every afternoon. After two days of this behavior, he noticed the dog barking at the back of the couch. He moved the couch, and there was a black mamba! At that moment, with the snake now more exposed, the Rottweiler ran in to attack this creature it saw as a threat. The homeowner grabbed the large dog as it ran past, just in time, and dragged it inside.,” wrote Evans.
