Watch How Courageous Dog Rescues Child from Cobra

Near the Kukke Subramanya Temple in Dakshina Kannada, a touching incident unfolded where a street dog emerged as a hero, preventing a potentially dangerous encounter between a child and a venomous cobra. The incident occurred as a family of pilgrims visited the temple and garnered significant attention on social media, with people commending the dog’s exceptional awareness and protective instincts.

According to reports by Mangalore Today, the incident occurred when a woman, accompanied by her child, purchased puja ingredients from a nearby shop on their way to the Adi Subramanya shrine. Cobra stealthily crossed the road as the child roamed the roadside. Thanks to the street dog’s timely intervention, the child was spared from potentially stepping on the snake, averting a tragic outcome.

Eyewitnesses recounted how the street dog, affectionately known as Kariya, swiftly arrived at the scene and positioned itself between the child and the cobra, effectively shielding the youngster from harm. With the impressive presence of mind, the dog prevented the child from making sudden movements that could have escalated the situation while allowing the snake to slither away safely.

Kariya’s quick and instinctive response to the danger has earned praise from locals and social media users. Frequently seen around the Kukke Subramanya Temple, Kariya’s actions underscore stray animals’ often-overlooked role in our communities.

This heartwarming story is not an isolated incident. Recently, a similar act of bravery by street dogs was captured in a viral video from Uttar Pradesh’s Shravasti district. In the footage, three vigilant dogs were observed barking at a venomous snake on the streets, alerting nearby residents to the potential danger.

The inspiring tales of Kariya and the vigilant street dogs of Shravasti serve as poignant reminders of the bond between humans and animals and the invaluable contributions of stray animals to our communities. As these uplifting stories continue circulating on social media, they encourage us to recognize and cherish the often-unheralded heroes among us, both human and animal alike.
